Kwik Trip/Kwik Star wants to build a second store in Decorah

Representatives from the Kwik Trip/Kwik Star realty department will visit Decorah Monday night to show members of the city's Planning and Zoning Commission sketches of the company's plans for a second store in Decorah.

The company, which currently operates a store at the corner of Short Street and Highway 9, wants to build a second store near the corner of Montgomery Street and Highway 9.  The new store would be located where the Nordic Express operated until a fire severely damaged the store last December.

The proposal Kwik Trip will unveil on Monday night at Decorah City Hall calls for tearing down the existing facility.  In its place, a new building would be constructed.  Kwik Trip officials say they do not have exact plans yet for the building, but it will probably be similar to many of the other Kwik Stars in NE Iowa.
