Meatball noted and I was able to confirm that the Williamsburg Hy-Vee is about to expand. That in itself isn't so surprising. What is surprising is that it means the long-running rumors were actually true. How often does that happen?
The expansion will add some 15% to the store's area, bringing it to about 82,000 square feet. New features will include an in-store Caribou Coffee and an expanded alcohol section that will have its own entrance, just like the store on North 84th Street (and O Street?).
Along with the VA regional office, that makes two fairly substantial bits of news for Williamsburg in recent days. Maybe the area is getting a little momentum.
