It's never a bad idea to be too cautious in today's world. Being vigilant and alert are some of the reasons why one popular Sioux Falls grocery store is a little bit safer today.

The brave men and women of the Sioux Falls Police Department responded to a scary bomb threat call early Sunday afternoon. Where was the bomb threat located? The Hy-Vee is located at 3000 South Minnesota Avenue. This is probably one of the most populated Hy-Vee store locations in the Sioux Falls area.
