Waterloo, Cedar Falls Fareway stores "Blue Zones" certified


Two more area grocery stores have now earned the "Blue Zones" designation.

Fareway in both Waterloo and Cedar Falls received their official certification Wednesday.  The stores include wide fruit and vegetable aisles and special parking spaces that encourage shoppers to walk more.  All beverage coolers are now stocked with water, and there's even a special check out lane with only healthy options like fruit and granola bars.

Local Hy-Vee chains earned the Blue Zones designation last month.
