New Lunds now Open in Downtown Minneapolis

Now open downtown Minneapolis!

We opened the doors to our newest full-service Lunds grocery store and wines and spirits shop in downtown Minneapolis on June 14, 2012!

Lunds grocery store:  On the corner of 12th Street and Hennepin Avenue

About the grocery store:
The new Lunds on the corner of 12th Street and Hennepin Avenue is approximately 20,000 square feet. This store features an impressive selection of foods produced locally and sourced from around the world, including prepared foods, dry-aged beef, sustainable seafood and USDA-certified organic produce.  Additional amenities includes a Caribou Coffee and floral arrangements from Bachman’s.

The grocery store is housed in a building constructed in 1912 by the Reno Motor Company. It’s one of the earliest automotive buildings that still exist along Hennepin Avenue. Floor to ceiling windows once showcased shiny new vehicles. Today, similar windows will show off our incredible food offerings.

Because of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact, we will be going through the process of acquiring LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, making this our first truly “green” grocery store. Learn more about our LEED efforts >


Lunds Wine Market: This rendering shows the urban rain garden, patio seating area and rear entrance to the future Lunds Wine Market at 1208 Harmon Place.

About the wines and spirits shop:
We also opened a 4,100-square-foot wines and spirits shop on the corner of 12th Street with a global selection of microbrews, wines and spirits in the adjacent building at 1208 Harmon Avenue. Nestled between the grocery store and liquor store will be an urban rain garden featuring a patio seating area.

The Wine and Spirits shop, known as the Sturr-Bullard Motor Company building, was originally built in 1914 and served as a showroom for Nash and Ford vehicles. Large carved oak panels and beams, once admired while showcasing new Ford Model Ts, will continue to adorn the ceiling of this Wines & Spirits shop.

There’s a rich history to these buildings and we’re looking forward to preserving their retail heritage while providing today’s urban residents and workers with a shopping experience that’s second to none.
