Former Copps Distribution Warehouse Sold
Officials from Stevens Point have confirmed Friday the former site of Copps Distribution Center, 282 Wayne St., has a new owner.
The site has been vacant since September when Roundy’s, Inc. announced it would close the warehouse, leaving well over 100 local residents out of work.
The warehouse distributed food to a number of Roundy’s chain stores in the upper Midwest, including a number of Rainbow grocery store locations in Minnesota. But beyond the unemployment, the closure left assistance organizations like Operation Bootstrap $200,000 in food donations that came in from the warehouse each year.
According to Michael Ostrowski, the community development director for Stevens Point, the building was sold to Stevens Point Distribution Co LLC which is based in Minneapolis.
The city assessor was not immediately available for comment. More as we have it.
