The stores will be located in Cedar Rapids and Cedar Falls. The Cedar Rapids location will be built at the new development near Edgewood Road and Iowa Highway 100. In Cedar Falls, the store will be constructed at the intersection of Iowa Highway 58 and U.S. Highway 20.

“We are proud to be expanding our store presence in Iowa, creating jobs and being part of a compelling retail growth story," Vice President of Real Estate and Construction Tom Carrico said.

Each store will have a size of 190,000 square feet. The company estimates each will employ more than 200 people.
