Newly renovated Midtown Center Pick ‘n Save provides big boost

Today, I was joined by Mayor Tom Barrett and executives from Roundy’s as we celebrated the grand reopening of Pick ‘n Save at Midtown Center in my district. With more than $2 million in upgrades, the Midtown Pick ‘n Save is now a marquee store for the grocery chain in the city.

At a time when other nearby grocers are shuttering services like the now vacant Walmart and the soon-to-be closed Lena’s, Pick ‘n Save has redoubled efforts to make sure that Capitol Heights and the surrounding neighborhoods do not become a food desert as too many neighborhoods in our community are.

This investment is also important because Pick ‘n Save is an anchor store at Midtown that helps to buoy the center as a regional area for commerce. A strong and thriving Pick ‘n Save is key to a strong Midtown which in turn is important for economic development in my district and all of the northwest side of the city.

From top to bottom and from interior to exterior the store is impressive and I encourage shoppers both new and old, to check out the new store. I think that you’ll be amazed too.
