Just over a month after we told you Kwik Star was expanding into Hiawatha, they're at it again.

The La Crosse, Wisconsin based chain of convenience stores that opened their first location in Cedar Rapids four years ago, has announced its sixth store in the Cedar Rapids metro.

The newest convenience store location will sit just to the east of the new headquarters for Collins Community Credit Union that's under construction on the southwest corner of Blairs Ferry Road and Rockwell Drive NE. It will be in the development known as Northtowne Market. This will be the company's second location on Blairs Ferry Road. The Hiawatha store under construction is on the north side of Blairs Ferry Road, just east of Edgewood Road NE.
