Progress continues on Downtown Grocery rebuild

By WSAW Staff

Downtown Grocery is making some progress on their permanent store-front, and is announcing some big changes.

The store was destroyed after a fire in September of 2015, and since then the store has been operating out of a temporary location in the Wausau Center Mall.

Now, they're planning to expand by using the upstairs space as a way to increase their services.

"We're just really excited to have an opportunity to rebuild the business in a different way with many of the same features, but with new aspects that we haven't had before," said Kevin Korpela, owner of Downtown Grocery.

The store still has a long way to go before they're ready to open up again, but Korpela says community support has made that process go a lot faster.
