Cub Foods, the largest grocery chain in the Twin Cities, will be reducing the opening hours of many of its stores in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The chain has said that as of 10 p.m. Wednesday, the regular opening hours for most of its stores will be 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. until further notice.
However, Cub has said it will still be keeping 13 of its stores open 24/7.
Here are the stores staying open 24/7. If your local store is not on here, its new hours will be 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- Blaine North located at 12595 Central Ave NE.
- Chanhassen located at 7900 Market Blvd.
- Coon Rapids North located at 12900 Riverdale Dr NW.
- Duluth located at 615 W Central Entrance.
- Eagan West located at 1940 Cliff Lake Rd.
- Fridley located at 250 57th Ave NE, Fridley, MN 55432
- Lakeville South located at 20250 Heritage Dr.
- Mankato West located at 1200 S Riverfront Dr.
- Maple Grove located at 8150 Wedgewood Ln N.
- Midway located at 1440 University Ave W., St. Paul.
- Rochester located at 1021 15th Ave SE.
- Stillwater located at 1801 Market Dr.
- Uptown located at 1104 Lagoon Ave, Minneapolis.
Explaining the change, Cub CEO Mike Stigers said: "Cub is focused on remaining open as many hours as possible to meet the needs of our communities while allowing us time to restock and condition the store.
"There is ample food supply to meet the normal needs of all Minnesotans and deliveries are happening at stores throughout each day containing fresh and non-perishable grocery products to restock shelves.
"Our associates continue to work hard and embrace their role as a critical provider of essential food and grocery items for their neighborhoods. I am extremely proud of their ongoing efforts and support during this time."
Cub will also be extending the hours of its pharmacies in Blaine North, Maple Grove, Midway and Stillwater to 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
And it's following the example of Lunds & Byerlys in requesting that the first hour of business, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at its non 24/7 stores be earmarked for shoppers who are high-risk from coronavirus, as well as healthcare workers and first responders.
