The new County Fair Foods store in Dell Rapids will open on Monday, December 16th. The new 35,352 square-foot building started construction on June 17th with ground breaking. At that time the estimated time of the construction was six months, and the store will open one day shy of exactly six months from the ground breaking. The new facility is nearly three times as large as the other store, and features new and expanded features. The County Fair will also house the Dell Rapids Lewis store and will have a drive thru pharmacy window.
County Fair closed down the old store mid-afternoon on Saturday, December 14th, and numerous employees and volunteers helped move the remaining products from the old store to the new location to get the products on the shelves and the store ready for opening.
