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.
