Broker confirms sale of LP’s former Prairie Market grocery building

LESTER PRAIRIE – ReMax Commercial Broker Douglas Harris confirmed today that the former Prairie Market grocery store building at 26 Juniper Street has been sold.  Closing on the property took place Aug. 31.

Former owners Mark and Linda Detlefsen purchased the grocery store in 2008 from Dan and Shari Wagner, who had purchased the business in 2006.  The Detlefsens operated the grocery store until early this year, closing it permanently Jan. 26.

Harris indicated the new owners, an investment group, allegedly intend to open a bakery in the building.

Lester Prairie’s Economic/Community Developement Coordinator Adam Birkholz knows rumors have been circulating about the building‘s fate.  As of today, Birkholz said, no one has approached him regarding potential city Economic Development Authority (EDA) opportunities at the former grocery store building.  No one has inquired about planning and zoning issues related to the property, either.
