Quillin's Stores Sold
It may have been the worst kept secret in town. Festival Foods is buying two Quillin's stores and plans to tear one of them down. The Quillin's and Skogen families are finally confirming what has been rumored for months. The Quillin's in the Village and Quillin's Shelby location are being purchased by the Skogens. The Village store will be torn down and replaced by a new Festival. The Shelby location will stay open until the new Festival is built, and then will be closed. The sale leaves La Crosse without a Quillin's. Quillin's stores remain on French Island and in La Crescent, Decorah, Waukon and Caledonia.
