ST. CLOUD – A Sartell eye clinic is expanding in St. Cloud.
The Pinecone Vision Center held a groundbreaking ceremony Friday morning for its new location. The clinic will be located off South 33rd Street in St. Cloud, between Stride Academy and Tech High School.
Dr. Nick Colatrella says expansion plans began before the pandemic hit and they’re excited to finally get to this point.
We were so lucky. We opened at Sartell in 2004 when it was just Dr Hinkemeyer and myself and we have been so blessed for our growth. Being able to serve another community in the same capacity is going to be fantastic.
The 7,000 square foot building will focus primarily on eye care services, with their administrative services remaining at Sartell.
Dr Stacy Hinkemeyer says that in addition to their current eye care services, they are also adding cosmetic eye care, a first in central Minnesota.
So it looks at cosmetic issues like makeup and other treatments we can do to improve aesthetics, including light skin care procedures.
Hinkemeyer says they are excited to be part of the growing South St. Cloud region.
If all goes well, they hope to open their new clinic by October. Their official location is at 3274 Nottingham Road South.
