A reader asked about the gutted car wash site on Old West Main Street in Red Wing.
Their question reads: “What is going in at the old car wash . . . Are we ever going to get another grocery store in Red Wing?”
The reader’s question came just before the Red Wing City Council approved a redevelopment project for the site.
The existing car wash building will be converted into a three tenant structure that could include two restaurants with drive-thru windows and one without.
“So far only one tenant has a signed lease, Scooter’s Coffee,” Steve Kohn, planning manager, said.
The owner of the property, Eric Stelter, is working on finding additional tenants.
The construction timetable is undetermined.
