Coborn's announces it'll no longer deliver in the Twin Cities

Minnesota grocery store chain Coborn's has announced it will stop its delivery service in the Twin Cities.

The St. Cloud-based company has been delivering groceries in the Twin Cities metro since 2008, despite most of its 26 stores being outside the 7-county metro area.

It had been serving the metro area out of a single distribution center in New Hope, but will now transition its home delivery services to Cub Foods, who will start serving Coborn's Twin Cities customers from Aug. 15 onwards.

Coborn's will now focus on offering delivery for customers in Elk River and St. Cloud, where it is based, as well as for customers of Cash Wise Delivers – which it also owns – in Owatonna, Fargo and Bismarck.

It will still offer curbside pickup at all of its Coborn's, Cash Wise, and Marketplace Foods stores.

"Coborn’s has always been a forward-thinking company, and our president and CEO Chris Coborn had tremendous vision for the future of grocery delivery in 2008 when we purchased and renamed early leader SimonDelivers in the Twin Cities," said Emily Coborn, Vice President of Operations for Coborn’s Inc.

"CobornsDelivers has been the grocery delivery gold standard in the Twin Cities metro for more than a decade, with our warehouse hub and dedicated driver service. We are incredibly proud to have helped a generation of Twin Cities shoppers get their grocery run totally done online

"Now we look forward to bringing those innovations — and the easier way of life online shopping can bring — to our customers in our 62 store locations. And, we know our Twin Cities customers will be well taken care of in the future by our friends at Cub."

Customers transferring to Cub will be offered a $20 off their first order with a $35 minimum purchase, using the promo code SAVE7646.

Coborn's also owns Fargo-based grocery chain Hornbacher's, which it bought last December.

Coborn's was established in 1921, and has approximately 8,000 employees under its various brand names across Minnesota, the Dakotas, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.
