Good Harvest Market to Build Larger Store
Good Harvest Market is breaking ground in July on a new, 23,000-square-foot building, which is about 10,000 square feet larger than their current facility and targeted to open in April 2015. Joe Nolan, who co-owns the company with his wife, Jody, says increased growth prompted the relocation to a 23-acre parcel, at the end of Meadow Lane, off Silvernail Road, in Pewaukee, about a quarter-mile from their present location.
The new store will feature a bigger health and wellness department, with natural cosmetics, toiletries and supplements; a produce department that is twice as big; more bulk options, including grains and liquids such as olive oils, soaps and shampoos; a larger café with seating for 100; an outdoor patio with a fireplace; and an environmentally friendly dry cleaner.
“The new design will close the cafe off from the rest of the store, so it can operate before and after business hours,” Nolan explains. “We’ll serve breakfast and dinner, have a room with a seating area for private functions and host events such as acoustic guitar nights with wine and beer available.”
Nolan plans to use green practices throughout the construction; an herb garden will be installed and 17 acres will be set aside as a reserve for nature walks. “We will be as eco-friendly as we can make it,” he remarks.
