"It's going great," said Dave Nyberg of the new store, which is located on Highway 23 on the west end of Paynesville. "Seeing a lot of new faces and encouraged by the great response."

"We love it," added store manager Bob Cole. "We love the new store." With 28,500 sq. ft., the new store has more than double the space of the old store (12,000 sq. ft.). This extra space allows them to offer a variety of new items and to have a deli, said Nyberg. The new store has a "big town feel" in a small town, added Nyberg, and it still has friendly faces that customers know.

"Everybody's so happy we're here," said Cole. "They don't have to go to St. Cloud or Willmar."

Paynesville SuperValu now has nearly 80 employees.

Paynesville SuperValu started fresh with new stock at its new store. It gave $10,000 in goods left at the old store to the Paynesville Area Community Service Center.

Hours are still 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, though the deli hours run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
