Kowalski’s looks to settle into Shoreview’s former Rainbow Foods
The former Rainbow Foods location at County Road 96 and Hodgson Road in Shoreview might soon be the home of a new grocery store.
According to Shoreview Mayor Sandy Martin, Kowalski's is looking like a bright option for the 68,000-square-foot space built in the 1990s and left empty when Rainbow's parent company, the Milwaukee-based Roundy's Supermarkets, Inc., pulled out of the Twin Cities in July 2014.
Arden Hills is looking to fill the vacancy on the city council caused by the recent death of Robert Woodburn. Applications will be available at City Hall, 1245 Highway 96 and on the city website from Dec. 1 through Dec.
