Fareway opens in Dubuque

Posted:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Dubuque got its first Fareway Wednesday morning with a large grand-opening crowd. This is Fareway's 99th location.

The new store created more than 100 jobs for people in the area. Fareway said more than 1,000 people applied for the open positions.

Manager Paul Schemmel said Fareway may give other grocery stores in Dubuque a run for their money.

"Fareways coming to town, we're used to HyVees, we're used to being in a competitive nature, so we're just offering another option to people," Schemmel said.

Prior to the grand opening, the Fareways nearest to Dubuque included Manchester, Monticello and Maquoketa.
