Woodman’s may build store in Waukesha

Janesville-based Woodman’s Food Market Inc. is considering plans to build a store in Waukesha, Mayor Jeff Scrima said.

Scrima said he reached out to Woodman’s after he was elected last year and encouraged the company to build a grocery store in Waukesha. Scrima said the company had identified three sites in the city as possible store locations. Scrima said he could not reveal those sites.

However, he said an announcement from Woodman’s about its plans for a store in Waukesha could be made within the next 6 weeks.

“My feeling is that it’s very likely (Woodman’s will build a store in Waukesha),” Scrima said. “There are a number of details that still have to be worked out. We are hopeful that they will be coming here.”

Woodman’s vice president of real estate Bret Backus could not be reached for comment.

Woodman’s owns and operates large discount grocery stores, typically about 240,000 square feet in size. In southeastern Wisconsin, the company has stores in Oak Creek, Menomonee Falls and Kenosha.
