A Kessler’s remodel is underway, as you may have noticed driving by on Sixth Avenue. The revamp will be completed in two phases.
The first phase, which began in September, focuses on customer-centric upgrades with an enhanced commitment to efficiency and zero wait experience for their customers. Kessler’s offered 10 full-service lanes before the remodel, and the new structure will reduce the full-service lanes to eight with the addition of nine self-checkouts.
Caribou Coffee has been approved with the option of in-person orders or mobile pickups brought to the customer’s vehicle in designated spaces. Also, Phase 1 is bringing a new department offering a variety of homemade popcorn and sweets like caramel apples.
The pharmacy will also expand its services with a drive-thru along with specialized compounding and point-of-care testing and immunization work. The completion of Phase 1 is projected to be in the Spring 2022.
Phase 2 will introduce interior remodeling with new deli, bakery, and meat cases with general updates to lighting, floors, and fixtures. The biggest expansion involves the renovation to the Wine, Beer, and Liquor department, which will run the entire depth of the southern wall.
Kessler’s continually looks to evolve, which has been a trademark of the business through generations. The store looks to the future and stays at the front of cutting edge features in the market. //—Josie Clemens
