June 19, 2019 – West Bend, WI – Demolition is underway on the former Grimm’s Dollar Express on S. Main Street just south of Butternut Street. Neighbors will remember there were actually two Grimm’s Dollar Express stores; one in West Bend and the other in Hartford from 2003-2008.
In May 2019 the West Bend Plan Commission signed off on plans for development of a new Pet Supplies Plus. The store is listed as “a privately held pet supply retailing corporation that was founded in 1988 in Redford, Michigan. As of 2005, it was the third largest specialty pet food retailer in the US.”
There are outlets across Wisconsin including Greendale, Glendale, Racine, Appleton, Waukesha and Brookfield as well as a number of stores in Illinois.
On a history note: Does anyone remember when the building was home to Montgomery Ward? What was that store like?
