TIFFIN – It’s been nearly five years since Tiffin residents put a grocery store at the top of their wish list, and last week the city came a few shovelfuls closer to reaching that dream.

On the sunny afternoon of Thursday, Aug. 23, gold shovels in hand, representatives of the City of Tiffin, Fareway Stores, Inc. and the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce broke ground together at the site of the upcoming Fareway grocery store. Located at 500 Croell Ave., the city’s first grocery store will be approximately 19,000 square feet in scale, and is expected to open its doors spring 2019.
