Groundbreaking For Buffalo Grove Woodman's Is Today

The new 242,000-square-foot grocery store will be located on the northwest corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Deerfield Road.

BUFFALO GROVE, IL -- A groundbreaking ceremony will be held for the new Woodman’s Market in Buffalo Grove next week. The event will take place on the northwest corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Deerfield Road, which is the future site of the 242,000-square-foot Woodman’s grocery store, starting at 11 a.m. on Sept. 27. The site will also include a gas station, car wash and lube station.

In addition, Shorewood Development Group will be developing a commercial property on the southwest corner of the intersection. Woodman’s Food Market is anticipated to open next summer or fall.

The 25-acre project has involved coordination with multiple government partners, including Lake County, the Lake County Department of Transportation (LCDOT) and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), according to a news release from the village of Buffalo Grove.

Woodman’s officials have cited Buffalo Grove’s prime regional location, strong purchasing power, and business-friendly atmosphere as reasons why they chose to locate a store in the village. The Janesville, Wisconsin-based company is employee-owned, with 17 locations in Illinois and Wisconsin.

The grocery chain is known for its large selection of products offering ‘every-day low prices’ on more than 100,000 items sold in the stores.
