Iowa’s largest grocery chain says it will soon be ending it’s overnight hours of operation.
Starting next Monday, Hy-Vee food stores will stop keeping its stores open around the clock.
Hy-Vee spokeswoman Tina Potthoff says few customers do their shopping between midnight and six A-M, so all current 24-hour stores will be scaling back their hours.
