Goodhue Market Re-Opens After Re-Fresh


The Goodhue Market re-opened January 19th after a planned renovation that began on December 31st. Pete and Regina Poncelet, who took over the former Don’s Foods business on October 17, 2022, used the three week closure to implement their plans to completely re-fresh the store.

The first change you will notice when you enter is the larger open space inside the door and around the new checkout lanes which have been moved closer, and parallel to, the East wall. Employees are becoming proficient on the more modern computer checkout system. The space is also brighter with more windows above the doors. Red Wing Glass was hired to remove and replace the front doors and windows in order to bring in the full, front-opening coolers that house the fresh produce and frozen foods. The coolers run along the South and West walls and sit upon new wood-look floors.

Another very noticeable change is that the grocery shelves now run North/South creating a bit more space than the old East/West arrangement. The meat, deli, and bakery departments remain much the same and still offer the familiar favorites. Market silhouettes of a chicken, pig, and cow grab your attention on the newly painted header above the deli counter. The entire interior has been freshly painted and accented with artful signs created by Abbie Haugen, owner of 408 Designs.

Stop in Monday-Saturday between 8 AM and 6 PM or Sundays 9 AM to 1 PM to check out all of the changes and support the Goodhue Market grocery store.
