 Officials at Dillon Stores have announced renovation plans for their location at 4107 10th St. Great Bend to provide customers with enhanced features and one-stop shopping. Included are a new look, a Starbuck Coffee kiosk and expanded produce selections.

The initial construction is currently underway and is expected to be completed early in 2018. Store managers were notified of the changes in a building-wide meeting Thursday afternoon.

“We are super excited,” said Sheila Lowrie, Dillons corporate affairs manager. “When we are all finished, it will feel like a brand new store.”

When complete, the newly remodeled Dillons will feature enhancements throughout the store. A few examples include:

• New fresh décor package with warm colors, upgraded department markers, and energy-efficient ambient lighting

• New energy-efficient freezers and refrigerated cases throughout the store

• Enhanced frozen food and grocery offerings with a focus on quality store brands, including its new budget-friendly line, Kroger Value

Lowrie said they realize this will be trying for their customers and their patience is appreciated.

“We are sure customers will be thrilled with the new look and offerings, following our renovation,” said Lowrie. “These enhancements will allow us to focus even more attention on providing what our customers want – freshness, friendly service, variety, and value – all at their neighborhood Dillons.”
