Market Place will become Kwik Trip; liquor store stays

By Gretta Becay

Byron Market Place is being sold to Kwik Trip. The current owner, Randy Fogelson, will lease the liquor store portion of the facility and continue to operate that business, confirmed Hans Zeitlow, director of real estate at Kwik Trip's headquarters in LaCrosse.

Employees at the store were informed June 18 and Zeitlow met with city officials the following day to talk with them about the transaction.

Zeitlow says both Kwik Trips in town will stay open.

At the meeting of the Byron Economic Development Authority June 19, Fogelson said he would be liquidating the inventory. Kwik Trip will begin remodeling in the near future including moving the gas pumps to the front of the store.

"Byron is a great community," said Zeitlow.

"I'm happy for you," Council member Dan Mesenburg told Fogelson at the BEDA meeting. "When opportunities like this come along, you have to take them."

"The city was informed by the owner of Market Place they were closing down the store Aug. 1," Mayor Daryl Glassmaker said in an email. "This opens up an opportunity for another grocery store to build in Byron. Although we probably will not have a grocery store in the short term, you can be assured the city will be looking to fill this need. It's a great opportunity for another provider to serve the needs of Byron."

Byron has had a grocery store since 1880 when A. L. Cutting started a general store. The store was located on Fourth Street and when that store burned down in 1885, Cutting built a new one across the street in the location where H.I.P. (Home Improvement Professionals) is located now.
