After Bergner's announced the store would be leaving Cherry Vale mall rumors about Mills Fleet Farm (not to be confused with Blain's Farm & Fleet/Fleet & Farm) moving into the area taking over the soon-to-be-vacant space. It turns out the talk is half true. Cherry Valley officials did approve Mills Fleet Farm new location but it will not replace Bergner's. The "full-service supplier for life, work, home, and recreation" will be built in the 20+ acre field southeast of CherryVale Mall between Macy's and Road Ranger.

Fleet Farm Space

According to Eyewitness News, Mills Fleet Farm will be more than just the average retail store.

'This is a new concept store for them, it's a little different then the ones they've done in the past, it's 185 thousand square feet.' (Cherry Valley Village President Jim Claeyssen) The store will include amenities like a gas station, car wash, and lumber yard.

Here's a peek at another Mills Fleet Farm.

Mills Fleet Farm is expected to open in October 2019.
