Kwik-Trip To Offer Second Rhinelander Store


While Oneida county, the city of Rhinelander and the Kwik-Trip organization negotiate about opening a large complex on Rhinelander's west side, the convenience store chain got the OK from Rhinelander's planning commission recently to open a store on the city's north side. It would be the second store in Rhinelander, with the other near the WalMart complex on the city's east side.

The store would be in the 1500 blocks of Stevens and Eagle Streets at the county "W" intersection.

Rhinelander mayor Dick Johns says this is more tax base for the city...

"...negotiations have been going on on the Northside at the "W" intersection with Stevens Street on the corner there. Kwik Trip is going to be going into there. We authorized it at the planning commission. Things are looking pretty good for that at this stage of the game...."

The city council will need to approve the zoning change approved by the planning commission.

Regarding the third location in Rhinelander, negotiations with Kwik Trip continue as the company has made a $2.3 million dollar offer to buy the current county Highway Department buildings near the intersection of Highways 8 and 47 in Rhinelander.  The county is meeting to decide whether to take the offer and build a new highway facility two miles away from the current highway buildings, or remodel the current buildings and reject the Kwik-Trip offer.
