So this is a intriguing story of how HyVee decided to help out a community just shy of 150K when they closed;

In a statement, Hy-Vee says “No business wants to close a location and that certainly includes Hy-Vee. Over the past several weeks, we have listened to community leaders and residents about the impact of our store closures… Unfortunately, these three stores have each been losing significant amounts of money for several years, and they are simply not feasible for us to operate any longer.”

Funny how HyVee does this in a smaller community in Iowa when they get called out on their crap, but in Sux, we just shrug our shoulders.

    The result in Sioux Falls is the kind of thing that happens when political leaders are more interested in greasing money into someone’s nonprofit which replaces a legit grocery store; less concerned about how any of it impacts their constituents, the ordinary taxpaying citizen.

    Guy is right. The recent purchase agreement with the Blue hospital to get them out of financial trouble just shifted the pain to the taxpayers. The city doesn’t care if it puts another taxpaying citizen or company out of business as long as their palms are greased somehow. I’m waiting for the Blue hospital to sell their sports complex to the city for whatever is left in the city bonding limit.
