City will contribute $1.4 million in TIF to help move
The path is paved for Kowalki’s Market to settle in Shoreview after the city council finalized plans for the Woodbury-based grocery store chain to move into the former Rainbow Foods location at Highway 96 and Hodgson Road.
“We finalized the final plat, all of the development agreements and everything on Monday,” Mayor Sandy Martin said of the city’s moves at the March 7 city council meeting.
Kowalki’s new location is the 1990s-era 68,000-square-foot building that was left empty when Rainbow’s parent company, Milwaukee-based Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc., pulled out of the Twin Cities in July 2014.
At the beginning of the season, a top-two seed in section playoffs might not have been on the Roseville Area High School girls basketball team’s radar but that’s where it ended up.
Surprised or not, the Raiders made the most of their high ranking in the first round.
Roseville, seeded second in Section 5, Class 4A, rolled over seventh-seeded Irondale 60-29 at home on Feb. 2. The Raiders held the Knights to single digits in points in the first half and were on cruise control in the second.
