“As Minnesota’s hometown grocer, we’re thrilled to announce the construction of our newest CUB store here in Rochester. Once completed, our new store will increase our accessibility to this thriving community and provide the service and quality that our Rochester neighbors have come to expect from CUB,” said Brian Audette, Interim CEO of CUB. “We’ll continue to update the local community on our progress as the building and our plans for opening continue taking shape.”
