SIMONDELIVERS TO REOPEN AS COBORNSDELIVERS
New ownership combines 2008 Grocer of The Year with best home delivery service
August 26, 2008 ' St. Cloud-based grocery retailer, Coborn's Incorporated, today announced it has acquired and will reopen SimonDelivers as CobornsDelivers beginning in October. Metro customers who used SimonDelivers will be able to easily reactivate their accounts and access their past order histories. They can expect the same flexible, convenient delivery service, and the same fast, easy online shopping experience with CobornsDelivers.
Coborn's Inc. owns and operates 34 Coborn's and Cash Wise Foods grocery stores in the upper Midwest, and offers home delivery at seven of those locations. The Minnesota Grocers Association last month named Coborn's Minnesota's 2008 Grocer of The Year. CobornsDelivers brings metro customers Coborn's outstanding freshness and value, with the best online home delivery service. Details of the acquisition are not being made public.
'With rising gas and grocery prices, shoppers can save a lot of time and money by using CobornsDelivers,' said Coborn's president and CEO, Chris Coborn. 'We're bringing our grocery store right to your door. It's a tremendous value for the growing number of customers demanding the convenience and savings of one-click shopping.'
Coborn added, 'Our goal is to provide Twin Cities area customers with the best online grocery experience in the country. That means exceptional customer service, top quality groceries, and lower prices.'
Coborn's, Inc. is employee owned, and operates 34 Coborn's and Cash Wise Foods grocery stores in the upper Midwest, along with convenience, liquor, video stores and pharmacies. Coborn's also operates a central bakery, central dry cleaning facility, central commissary, long term care pharmacy and its own grocery distribution center. The company has been in business for 87 years, and currently employs 6,000 workers in six states.
Coborn's attributes its remarkable success to four guiding principles: customer service, freshness, value and community involvement. In addition to recognition as Minnesota's 2008 Grocer of The Year, the company has earned a reputation for outstanding community caring, donating more than $2 million and thousands of volunteer hours each year to the communities it serves.
