Green Bay, WI (WTAQ) - A day after Green Bay’s mayor promised a downtown grocery store, some companies may have already been ruled out.
At his annual state of the city speech, Mayor Jim Schmitt said he’d announce a grocery store by the end of the year. Schmitt says the city has been in discussions with Festival Foods, Copps, and Piggly Wiggly.
But "The Pig" says they're out. Festival says "no comment" for now.
Save-A-Lot is one of the only businesses currently in the downtown where you can buy groceries. The store’s operator says upgrades are underway for inside and outside of the store.
