LUVERNE — Fareway Stores, Inc. plans to renovate the approximately 2,300-square-foot former W-2’s Quality Meats store located at 220 W. Main Street in Luverne. Renovation of the existing building will begin immediately, with a tentative opening in early fall 2022.

“We are excited to announce plans for our first Fareway Meat Market in Minnesota,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds Cramer. “We would like to thank local city and economic development officials for helping make this project possible, as we look forward to serving and becoming an integral part of the Luverne community.”

“The City of Luverne and Economic Development Authority are very excited to be able to bring a Fareway Meat Market to Luverne,” said Mayor Pat Baustian. “We look forward to their success and their service to our community and southwest Minnesota.”

The new location is Fareway’s first stand-alone meat market in Minnesota. It will feature main course options, a variety of sides, and more.

“As part of the investment group that owns the building, we are excited and pleased with Fareway’s decision to come to Luverne and look forward to having them be a part of our business community,” said Michael Cox.
