A new grocery store could be moving into one Rock Island neighborhood.
The city has agreed to sell Audubon School to Fareway Stores.
So how do folks near the location feel about it? Well it's pretty mixed opinions.
The new Fareway will be right down the block from Hy-Vee and some customers feel it would be great to have competition in the area, but others will be sad to see the 90-year-old building torn down.
Laura Riley went to school at Audubon and says it's a shame to destroy it.
"I don't even know why they would want to tear it down it's got so many memories it's ridiculous."
Others have no real connection but still don't want the beautiful building to be lost, but Dale Riis has a different opinion entirely.
He lives right across the street from the school and cant wait to see Fareway go in.
"They're reasonable priced they have discount coupons in the mail every week and their people are courteous."
Not to mention the competition it would bring for its grocery store neighbors. Jacie Umlandt thinks it will be great.
"Competition is always good. The consumers win because they're going to try to lower prices to bring us in, and that's a win win."
But as always there are two sides to every story.
This is the first and only offer the city has had on the property since it went on the market back in 2010.
