A section of a new store opens today in Plattsmouth.
The pharmacy at Hy-Vee is operational today. Hy-Vee purchased Ruffner Pharmacy and prescriptions through Ruffner’s are transferred to Hy-Vee.
The rest of 55,000 square foot store will open at 6am Tuesday (12/3). Tuesday is the customary opening day for new stores in the Hy-Vee chain, says store director Mike Basch.
Basch is expecting a line outside the door before opening Tuesday morning as gift bags go to the first 100 customers over age 15.
A practice event with live customers at the Market Café—the first such full service Hy-Vee restaurant in Nebraska—was held Sunday.
The new store has about 90 fulltime employees and another 300 employees that will work part-time.
