A new Hornbacher’s store at 950 40th Avenue South in the Azool shopping center in South Moorhead, Minnesota, officially opened its doors to customers Wednesday. The store, which is the seventh Hornbacher’s in the Fargo-Moorhead area, is the first to feature a Hornbacher’s Pharmacy and includes an in-store bank and coffee shop, while delivering the freshness, quality and customer service that have been part of the brand since its founding in 1951, according to the Supervalu-owned banner.
The grocer commemorated the grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included Moorhead Mayor Del Rae Williams and Hornbacher’s President Matt Leiseth. Hornbacher’s also will host a series of events and promotions over the next two weeks to celebrate its first new store in the Fargo-Moorhead area since 2006.
“As a longtime resident of the Fargo-Moorhead community, it is an honor to be able to open this new store for our friends and neighbors,” Leiseth said. “Hornbacher’s is dedicated to the families of these cities and is committed to delivering the highest-quality products and service to our deserving customers.”
Added Williams, “It’s an exciting day for the city of Moorhead. Not only does this new store meet the growing need for a grocery store in this neighborhood, Hornbacher’s is a strong local company that consistently gives back to the community—making today a true win-win for the people of Moorhead.”
The Azool store includes employees from each of the company’s six other store locations and is led by store director and longtime employee Guy Goschen.
“It’s truly a privilege to serve the people of Fargo-Moorhead who have allowed us to grow over the years,” Goschen said. “We can’t wait for them to see this new store and enjoy all of the quality products and great service we’re ready to deliver for them.”
