ROYALTON - Royalton is getting a new grocery store in town.

A BILL'S Superette is being built at 17333 55th Avenue NW, near Highway 10. City Clerk Carol Madsen says they specialize in groceries while offering gas and take out food.

"We don't have any grocery store in town so this will be a huge asset to the community, we're very excited about it."

They also feature a food and drink bar, featuring sandwiches, salads, wraps, pizza, coffees and ICEE drinks.

The company website says BILL'S Superette is a locally owned convenience store operating for over 45 years. The website store locator says they have eight other locations in Minnesota.

The grand opening for the store is expected sometime in September or October.

"Local residents are excited to see what they have. Some are concerned about the traffic, but for the most part: the majority of residents are really excited about it," Madsen says.
