Coborn’s purchased approximately $150,000 in gift cards to local restaurants across the four states it operates in. The grocery chain recently began distributing the cards to its employees as a small token of appreciation during the holiday season and as a way to support local restaurants. Each Coborn’s employee received a $15 gift card to a local restaurant in their community.

The company operates Coborn’s, Cash Wise, Marketplace Foods and Hornbacher’s supermarkets in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, as well as numerous other retail operations, warehouse and distribution facilities, a centralized bake shoppe and its corporate office, located in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

“This has been a challenging year for so many businesses and individuals in the communities we serve, and the restaurant industry has been particularly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dave Meyer, EVP for the company. “We appreciate the hard work and significant value that local restaurants have in our communities, many of whom we partner with throughout the year. This small gesture rewards our employees for their hard work and can hopefully provide some additional meaningful support to our local restaurants.”

Coborn’s has implemented other programs this year to support local organizations in the communities it serves, as well. The company donated more than $500,000 in financial support and food to local food shelves as well as coordinated a Hometown Healthcare Heroes campaign to support the mission of the CentraCare Foundation’s work to assist local health care workers. The company also has provided additional financial support to many of its employees through the Coborn’s Care Fund since the pandemic started.

St. Cloud, Minnesota-based Coborn’s Inc. is a 99-year-old employee-owned grocery retailer with nearly 9,300 employees and 60 grocery stores across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin under the Coborn’s, Cash Wise Foods, Marketplace Foods and Hornbacher’s banners. Coborn’s Inc. also owns liquor and pharmacy locations.
