OCONOMOWOC — The former Kmart building at 1450 Summit Avenue is undergoing remodeling before Sendik’s Food Market moves in this fall.

Sendik’s coming to Oconomowoc in fall

OCONOMOWOC — A Sendik’s Food Market is slated to open in Oconomowoc later this year at the Olympia Fields development on Summit Avenue.

Jason Gallo, city planner and zoning administrator for Oconomowoc, said the 60,000 square-foot grocery store’s anticipated opening day is Nov. 1.

The Sendik’s is an anchor store for the ongoing Olympia Fields development off Summit Avenue.

“The city is very excited to have Sendik’s locate within the Olympia Fields Development,” Gallo said. “We have heard interest for this particular retailer from the community for a long time. The Sendik’s store is bringing a special energy to the area that is attracting other retailers and restaurants.”
