CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -
A popular Iowa City health food store is expanding.
New Pioneer Food Co-Op announced today that it will open a third store in Cedar Rapids.
The store will be located at 3338 Center Point Road NE.
Currently, New Pi has locations in Iowa City and Coralville, and officials hope to open a second Iowa City spot.
They plan to open the Cedar Rapids store in 2015.
"We exist to support education around health, local foods, sustainable foods," said Matt Hartz, New Pioneer General Manager. "And what we provide is becoming increasingly meaningful to consumers today."
New Pi will be one of two new healthy grocery stores in Cedar Rapids. The Fresh Market also plans to open a store on Collins Road.
