Stillwater-based Cub Foods has announced its commitment to rebuilding and reopening its two stores that were damaged during May's civil unrest in Minneapolis.

The grocery chain says that the stores on West Broadway Avenue in north Minneapolis and Lake Street in south Minneapolis – both of which are owned by franchisee Jerry's Foods – will be restored after being damaged by looters and rioters.

Furthermore, while the construction is underway, Cub says it will open temporary community stores around 13,000 square feet in size to "help address the food insecurity issues in these Minneapolis neighborhoods."

These temporary stores – which will offer essential s including fresh produce, meat, dairy, over-the-counter medicines, and grocery items – are expected to open by July 8 on Lake Street and in late-July on West Broadway.

Furthermore, Cub is also launching a dedicated bus service to take people from the Broadway and Lake Street stores to other, full-size Cub stores in the area.

North Minneapolis residents will be taken to the Crystal store, while south Minneapolis residents will go to the Quarry Store in Northeast. The free service starts immediately, with buses running on the hour, and returning on the half-hour.

There will be a 20-rider limit per bus to adhere to social distancing rules.

It is also offering free grocery pickup at the Broadway and Lake Street stores for orders placed here.

“Cub is actively involved in our communities and it is our responsibility to roll-up our sleeves and find solutions to help meet the needs of our neighbors, family, and friends while our Broadway and Lake Street stores are under construction,” said Mike Stigers, Cub CEO.

"We know that even though these two stores are closed, life events, activities, and special occasions continue to take place and the community needs its neighborhood grocer to be there providing access to essential food and grocery items. We’re proud to offer a variety of options for customers to shop with Cub."

Target similarly has committed to reopening its riot-damaged stores, with the Uptown small-format store having opened earlier this week, with the Lake Street store expected to follow later in 2020.
