HyVee will be operating a gas station and a convenience store at the location of the McDonald's Restaurant in Cherokee.
Tim Haupert, manager of the Cherokee HyVee Food Store, said that he expects to have the gas station and convenience store in operation sometime in mid-August.
The station will sell both diesel fuel and gasoline. The HyVee company operates numerous gas stations and convenience stores.
Remodeling will begin soon in preparation for the opening of the business. Tentatively scheduled hours will be between 5 a.m. and midnight.
Haupert said a manager and several part-time managers will be hired, increasing HyVee's payroll in Cherokee.
