Hy-Vee has begun construction of a gas station & convenience store in St Joseph

Looks like we are getting a new gas station & convenience store

Last week when I went to our Hy-Vee grocery store I noticed that the Hollywood Video store at 205 North Belt Highway and the Sprint store at 206 North Belt had been demolished. Those buildings had sat empty for so long, I am glad to see someone making good use of that prime Belt Highway land.

The entire area was nothing but huge uprooted slabs of concrete, some looked to be several feet thick. There were bulldozers, backhoes and dump trucks busy removing the concrete from the area. The entire area now has a chain linked fence around it for security reasons.

Today when I went to Hy-Vee to pick up a few items, I saw that all of the concrete is now gone and the bulldozers are busy grading and smoothing out the dirt in the huge lot – too bad I didn’t have my camera with me. At the rate they are moving, new construction should be starting pretty soon.

Hy-Vee had submitted plans to the city on April 12 to build a gas station and convenience store on its property along the North Belt Highway. The new business will be similar to that of its sister store in Maryville, Mo.

Hy-Vee had purchased the Hollywood video store and Sprint store. They also own the shopping complex.

As I understand this, if you sign up for their Hy-Vee Fuel Saver card, you will be able to get a discount off their gsaoline when you purchase certain products at Hy-Vee. That should be a good incentive for people to shop at Hy-Vee. 

Below is their internet advertisement:

You could save $2.00* or more per gallon on gas when you shop at Hy-Vee.

There’s no limit to the number of Hy-Vee Fuel SaverTM products you can purchase. and each item you buy means you’ll pay less for your gas.

  • Shop for Hy-Vee Fuel SaverTM products marked with shelf signs throughout Hy-Vee and featured in our weekly Fuel Saver ad.
  • The more Hy-Vee Fuel SaverTM products you buy each week, the more you can save on gas.
  • You get 30 days to use the fuel discount you’ve earned on your card.
  • Just swipe your Hy-Vee Fuel SaverTM card at the pump and watch the price you pay per gallon drop.

  • Note: Multiple cards can be linked to a single account to accumulate discounts. However, discounts you earn may still only be redeemed by one vehicle per redemption transaction and your balance will be reset to zero once discounts have been redeemed.
