Leadership, community, and retail have long been a tradition of the Coborn Family. For decades, the Coborns’ have been recognized as pioneers. In 1921 Chester R. Coborn opened a one-room produce store in Sauk Rapids, MN. During its first two decades, the grocer would expand in size and selection, changes that were driven by economic necessity and Coborn’s commitment to ingenuity. 100 years and five generations later, that tradition continues.
