Downtown Menasha grocery project receives $250K grant

MENASHA – A grocery store in downtown Menasha is one step closer to becoming a reality.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation awarded the city a $250,000 grant for the project.

Menasha’s downtown area has been without a grocery store for more than a decade.

The city has negotiated a development agreement with Mike Novak and Paul Fassbender, operators of Webster Avenue Market and University Market in Green Bay, to open a store in Menasha. The city is also providing financial assistance and the WEDC grant provided the final piece of the necessary funding.

The new grocery store, a $2.6 million project, is expected to open in November.
