New Copp's Store to Open in Sun Prairie (

The new Copps grocery store in Sun Prairie opens for business at 6 a.m. Saturday and will feature more fresh produce, more prepared foods and a full-service Roundy’s pharmacy, said parent company, Roundy’s Supermarkets, based in Milwaukee.

The Copps store, at 640 E. Main St., replaces the Pick ‘n Save at 2001 McCoy Road, about two miles away.

The Main Street store in Sun Prairie — the 11th Copps grocery store in the Madison area and the second in Sun Prairie — will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. A grand opening celebration will be from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday and will include a $2,500 donation by Roundy’s to the Sun Prairie Education Foundation.

A 60,000-square-foot Copps store opened in March 2007 at the corner of highways C and 19 on Sun Prairie’s west side.
