Hy-Vee's new store in Plattsmouth opened Tuesday. World-Herald photographer Jim Burnett was there and captured scenes from the opening day.

Store director Mike Basch cut the ribbon on the 55,000-square-foot store, a new version that's a smaller footprint than the average 85,000-square-foot Hy-Vee store.

With the Plattsmouth location open, Hy-Vee operates 25 locations in Nebraska.

Hy-Vee's 26th Nebraska grocery store, a new 87,617-square-foot store that is under construction in Kearney — the chain's westernmost location — is expected to open next spring.

Hy-Vee plans to remodel about 75 of its 235 stores and add new full-service restaurants (Market Grilles or Market Cafes) at those locations. The new Plattsmouth store has a Market Cafe with a selection of food and beverages including wine and beer.
