The Knoxville Hy-Vee’s new Store Director says she appreciates the friendliness of shoppers and the store’s small-town atmosphere. Dorrie Decker comes to Knoxville from the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. She’s been working for Hy-Vee for 22 years. Decker says the biggest difference between a rural store and what she has experienced previously is how people are more personable. She explains that you see and notice the regular shoppers more often, adding she’s even had some shoppers introduce themselves to her.
