HARTLAND – The Balistreri family announced it will open a new
Sendik’s Food Markets location in Hartland next year.
The store will be located at 600 Hartbrook Drive in the
Hartbrook Mall, which will be renamed Sendik’s Hartland Plaza,
according to a Thursday announcement. It will be the twelfth
location for the family-owned grocer.
“We frequently hear from customers who would like Sendik’s to
join their community,” said Ted Balistreri, one of the family
co-owners of Sendik’s, in a statement. “Today, we’re excited to
announce our new Lake Country location to help us better serve
our guests from Waukesha County, and we look forward to meeting
all of our new neighbors.”
As part of opening the new location, the Balistreri family has
entered a contract with Devo Properties of Mequon to remodel a
30,000-square-foot vacant store space on the eastern end of
Hartbrook Mall. In addition, according to the announcement, Devo
Properties plans to enhance the entire 69,300-square-foot mall,
which includes Biebel’s True Value, Great Midwest Bank, and
BP/Colburn’s Car Wash.
“The village of Hartland has been a great partner already,” said
Greg Devorkin of Devo Properties in the statement. “We’re
grateful for all their help and expect a long and mutually
beneficial relationship with the good people of Hartland. We
can’t wait to get started on this project.”
The Sendik’s Food Markets in Hartland will employ about 40 to 45
full-time employees and the same number of part-time employees.
“We look forward to working with Devo Properties and Sendik’s to
re-energize this important part of the Village,” said Hartland
Village President Dave Lamerand in the statement.
Sendik’s Family Markets is based in Whitefish Bay and is known
for its “red bag.”
