The Med City’s largest grocery store will soon build a “grocery pickup kiosk” staffed by store employees for customers who order online.

Hy-Vee has filed plans with the City of Rochester to build a 1,200-square-foot “online grocery pick-up kiosk” by its store at 4221 West Circle Dr. NW, the largest of its four Rochester locations.

Christina Gayman, director of public relations for the Iowa-based grocery chain, confirmed the project as part of its Aisle Online service.

“The objective with these kiosks is to improve the Aisles Online pick-up process for our customers and increase capacity to be able to serve more customers,” she wrote. “It is something that we are bringing to other stores throughout our eight-state region, though this is the only one currently slated for the Rochester market.”

There is no timeline for construction yet.

Hy-Vee has installed lockers to store online orders in other cities. Customers pick up their order using one-time combination codes. That is not in the plans for Rochester at this time.

“This location will be a free-standing pickup kiosk in the parking lot that is manned by Hy-Vee employees,” wrote Gayman.

Hy-Vee built the 95,000-square-foot West Drive location and its adjacent convenience store/gas station in 2015. The store includes a Wahlburgers gourmet hamburger restaurant.
