DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee here is making plans to open its first store in Wisconsin, a company spokeswoman told SN. The site, a former Kmart in Madison, would represent Hy-Vee’s first store in Wisconsin and the first new state the retailer entered since expanding to Kansas in 1988. “We’re excited about it,” Chris Friesleben, the spokeswoman, told SN, but noted the project requires several approvals before an opening date is announced. “We’re several months away from a firm commitment.”
