|South Minneapolis's Wedge Natural Foods is looking to expand|
The Wedge's expansion plan encompasses a three-part process that they expect will take up to three years to see completion. The initiatives are all member-inspired, and they'll be seeking input along the way through a series of public roundtables. They've also got a dedicated email set up for community suggestions.

This leads directly into step two: a remodel of the existing Lyndale location. The Wedge is looking to not only increase ease of access, but also hoping a remodel will help to provide new services such as indoor customer seating, a hot bar, a salad bar, and rotisserie chickens.
Step three is the most ambitious of all: the construction of a brand new location. In the release to members, the Wedge explains: "For many years, members have requested another Wedge store in their neighborhood. We have members driving from far and wide. A second store will serve these members while helping to alleviate some of the congestion at our current store."
No location has currently been decided, but they're looking at where their members are located in an effort to help with the decision. For more information on the expansion, visit the Wedge's site.
