Cub Unveils Historic Remodel
Cub Foods shoppers in the Fridley, Minn., area are being treated to the most extensive remodeling project in the grocer's history with the unveiling this week of the new 65,000-square-foot store that brought changes storewide, inside and out.
“From the parking lot to the entrance to every department, customers will experience an entirely new store when they visit the Fridley Cub,” said Mark Halvorson, store director. “Fresh, bright and convenient is how I like to describe the in-store experience customers can expect. No stone was left unturned in this project and we are thrilled to officially unveil the new store to the community.”
The complete makeover -- showcased to the public during a Wednesday ribbon-cutting ceremony -- included an improved layout, new flooring and casing, expanded fresh departments, and energy-efficient refrigeration and lighting.
To celebrate the store’s commitment to the local community, Cub will also donate a check of $1,500 to the Fridley Historical Society, as well as a full pallet of assorted food to a local food shelf, Southern Anoka Community Assistance.
“This is the most extensive remodel at an existing location we’ve made in our nearly 45 year history in the Twin Cities. It’s truly a new store,” said Cub Foods president Brian Audette. “Our customers expect and deserve the best when it comes to freshness, quality, value and total shopping experience. We think they’ll have exactly that at this new store and we invite everyone in the area to come experience it for themselves.”
New bakery, deli, meat and produce departments will feature new cases, more fresh products and convenient displays. Moreover, nearly every store department has been enhanced to provide a wider variety of products for customers and to make them easier to navigate. Wider aisles, new self-checkout lanes, an expanded hot food section and improved shopping layouts deliver increased convenience this new store affords. A full-service pharmacy and in-store TCF Bank branch make shopping even more convenient.
Promotions and Cub Low Prices will be easily identifiable through dedicated areas for promotional and pallet displays. Additionally, a new layout for the popular “Wall of Savings” will notably display major savings for customers.
New LED lighting and the latest in refrigeration technology is in use across the store, strengthening freshness and quality, while also significantly reducing the store’s energy consumption and decreasing overall costs.
