Determined, hardworking, proud and visionary; those are the words that best characterize the owners and employees of Coborn’s, Inc. Coborn’s is the company that owns the 17 Cash Wise stores in the Midwest.
The legacy of Coborn’s began in 1921 when Chester Coborn opened a single produce market on Broadway Avenue in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. Eventually, Chester added dry goods and other merchandise as he tried to meet the needs of his customers. In 1936, the company took another big step when the store added a meat market.
As time passed, the store continued to evolve, adding shopping carts and checkout lanes in the 1940s. In 1952, the store adopted the “cash and carry” concept that is prevalent in today’s marketplace. Today, Coborn’s, Inc. owns and operates 50 Coborn’s and Cash Wise Foods grocery stores in the Upper Midwest.
