The company said the store would be the first full-service grocery store in downtown St. Paul. It is located on the first level of the Penfield Apartments at Robert and 10th streets.

“There has been a renewed vitality taking place in downtown St. Paul. One thing the community has lacked, until now, is a full-service grocery store. Our store team of nearly 80 employees is eager to provide the community with this much-needed amenity,” Tres Lund, president and CEO, said in a statement. “Whether you live or work in and around the downtown area, we look forward to becoming your new neighbor.”

The 27,000-square-foot store, which will be open seven days a week, features premium choice beef, locally grown and USDA-certified organic produce, and a full-service deli. Additional amenities include Caribou Coffee, Bachman’s floral and St. Croix Cleaners dry cleaning.

“I am thrilled to welcome Lunds to downtown Saint Paul, as our downtown residents can finally enjoy a quality, full-service grocery store in their neighborhood,” St. Paul mayor Chris Coleman said. “Lunds’ investment is a crucial one as we continue to see many major exciting milestones across the city this year."

Lund Food Holdings operates 12 Lunds and 11 Byerly’s grocery stores and one Lunds & Byerlys Kitchen in the Twin Cities and surrounding area.
