A new Kwik Star is getting ready to open its doors in LeClaire but not without some controversy.

Location, location, location. Every realtor pretty much ever preaches it. It's the driving force behind why some LeClaire residents are not fans of the new Kwik Star location but others are thrilled.

The new Kwik Star will be at 1201 Eagle Ridge Rd. in LeClaire and will have its grand opening on Nov. 16. The open house will be 12:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m., with the ribbon cutting at 1:30 p.m.

The city of LeClaire has been busy putting in an extra turning lane at Eagle Ridge & 67 as construction on the new Kwik Star has been going on. We told you back in 2018 about the city's approval of the new Kwik Star and it's just now gearing up to finally open.

WQAD reports that back in 2018, after the city of LeClaire gave Kwik Star the green light, 3 neighbors filed a joint lawsuit against the City of LeClaire and its council members arguing that the new Kwik Star would hinder employment and value of their property.

Grocery shopping is sparse to say the least in LeClaire so one argument has been that the Kwik Star is needed to help with that.

The LeClaire Kwik Star doesn't appear to have a Facebook account set up just yet like the other QCA Kwik Stars.
