RICHFIELD - Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly began construction on a 6,000-square-foot addition to its Richfield store. Goundbreaking was Monday at the construction site at the rear of the building.

Company President Pat Fox said the expansion will enable the store to increase the size of all departments as well as add some new features. The store is about 33,000 square feet.

Fox said the store’s bakery and delicatessen will be moved into the addition.

“We’ll be altering a large part of the rest of the store,” said Architect Tom Sugars of Thomas Design, Inc. “It will be almost a total facelift.”

“There will still also be room on site if the store wants to add another 6,000 square-foot addition,” Village Administrator Jim Healy said.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in early June. Fox Bros. also owns Piggly Wiggly locations in Hartland, Oconomowoc, Slinger, Jackson, a recently expanded Saukville store and a newly opened store in Hartford.

Store officials hope to have the expansion and the remodeling of the older building completed in June.
