Employees do not seem to be too happy about Hy-Vee's latest decision. Officials from the grocery store are blaming multiple employees who abused a certain privilege.

Effective Monday, February 20th, Hy-Vee grocery store employees will be losing out on a big perk of the job: the 10% employee discount. This benefit has been a part of the Hy-Vee employee package since December of 2020.

Along with that discount, employees also received a 20% discount on dine-in orders at their restaurants, as well as a  Hy-Vee Plus membership. The "Employee Discount" page on the Hy-Vee website is no longer working. So, there is no word if the other perks have been pushed to the wayside as well.

According to a report from We Are Iowa, a company official confirmed that over the span of one weekend multiple employees abused the discount.

One of the claims involves one case of one employee discount being used in five states in the span of one hour.

Officials do want to bring back the discount perk for employees eventually. The plan initially was to hopefully get it back sometime this summer. As of February 21st, Hy-Vee officials were able to confirm that some sort of discount will return sometime in April.

Roseanne Barr Abandoned Iowa Mansion in Eldon, IA

I fell into a rabbit hole when I found out that Roseanne Barr almost had a mansion in Iowa. After seeing the current state of the property on Facebook, I was amazed that such an extravagant project could be so quickly overtaken by nature. Only two hours away from Waterloo, this abandoned field could have hosted some of the coolest and elite Hollywood parties in the Midwest. The current photos were taken by Gable Fry on a recent trip he took.
