EDINA, Minn. (September 21, 2015) – Lund Food Holdings, Inc., parent company of Lunds & Byerlys, announced its purchase of Glen Lake’s Market, a 25,000-square-foot grocery store located at 14400 Excelsior Boulevard in Minnetonka.
“We look forward to the opportunity to bring our brand of extraordinary food, exceptional service and passionate expertise to those in and around the Glen Lake area in Minnetonka,” said Tres Lund, president and CEO of Lund Food Holdings, Inc.
The store will be temporarily closed beginning October 1 so it can be reset and rebranded. When it reopens in early November as a Lunds & Byerlys, the store hours will be 6 a.m. to midnight seven days a week.
Glen Lake’s Market employs approximately 50 people, and all of them will have the opportunity to interview for positions with Lunds & Byerlys with the goal of retaining as many of the store’s current employees as possible.
“While it was a very difficult decision for us to close this store, we couldn’t be more pleased that Lunds & Byerlys was willing to purchase it to provide the best long-term benefit for our employees, customers and the community,” said Alan Commins, General Manager of Glen Lake’s Market. “Lunds & Byerlys has a demonstrated commitment to providing a sensational working and shopping experience.”
