Coborn’s 12 Days of Christmas 2016

Coborn's 12 Days of Chrimstas! cobornsblog.com

It is hard to believe the holiday season is once again upon us! The Coborn’s elves have been busy over the last year, putting all the finishing touches on this year’s 3rd annual “12 Days of Christmas” celebration.

During this special holiday event, our elves and vendors visit 12 of our stores. They search for a guest at each with a full cart – and when the guest least expects it – they come out of nowhere and present the ultimate surprise: a $200 gift card that’s used to pay for their groceries and if they are a MORE Rewards Member, they receive DOUBLE Fuel Rewards!

The winning guest also receives a nice gift from the vendor. Plus, plenty of attention: the whole presentation is caught on camera!

The holiday giving does not stop there. Our elves also hand out 10 gift cards (valued at $20 each) to guests around the store, allowing others to get in on the fun!

Be sure to watch the Coborn’s Facebook page, Coborn’s YouTube Channel, or Coborn’s Website throughout the 12 Days of Christmas to find out where the elves have been!

We would also like to thank several of “Santa’s helpers” – our great vendors – who play a big part in making this event happen!

Crazy Fresh Produce
Crystal Farms
Folger’s
General Mills
Gold’n Plump
Kemps
KraftHeinz

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from all of us at Coborn’s!

I’m so excited to introduce you to our “new” Next-Generation of Coborn’s stores in Isanti, MN. So many people have asked me what makes it so different and I thought why we don’t just go shopping. So I took a trip to the new Coborn’s Marketplace store so that I could walk you through it and introduce you to some of the employees that work there.

Introducing Gluten Free Bakery at Coborn's!

Introducing Gluten Free Bakery at Coborn's! www.cobornsblog.com

There is something new coming to your local Coborn’s and we can’t contain the news any longer! We are excited to announce the opening of our Gluten Free Baking Facility! Located in the heart of Minnesota (St. Cloud), this facility is in a completely separate building from our conventional bakery to ensure there is no cross contact with gluten containing ingredients.

Gluten Free Cookes & Cupcakes - www.cobornsblog.comWith the growing demand for gluten free products and the majority of the current products available sold frozen, it seemed right to us to start a Gluten Free Bakery focused on offering primarily fresh baked goods. Our expert bakers work diligently to create products that are not only gluten free, but taste delicious! The selection of items is sure to please from morning until night. To start the day, there are sugared cake donuts and decadent muffins…with the Double Chocolate Chip being one of my personal favorites! Other muffin flavors include Chocolate Chip, Banana, Blueberry and Cranberry Orange – all melt in your mouth delicious! Lunch/Dinner time brings choices such as hotdog and hamburger buns, or a great slice of bread for a sandwich. Finish off with a tasty cupcake, bar, or cookie. Cupcakes come in both White and Devil’s Food, while the bars include Fudge Brownie and Chocolate Chip flavors. There is also a delightful selection of cookies – Sugar, Raspberry, Chocolate Chip, and Double Chocolate Chip – in two sizes!! Last, but certainly not least, are the frosted cakes available in delectable White and Devil’s Food. The flavors of these items will entice everyone – even those that do not need to eat gluten free.

Gluten Free Breads & Buns - www.cobornsblog.comEnsuring the products taste good is one aspect, but we also want to ensure the safety of our guests. Knowing that even the slightest amount of gluten can be detrimental for some, we are taking additional safeguards to ensure our gluten free claim holds true. Only gluten free ingredients are used along with testing all incoming ingredients as well as our finished products to confirm the absence of gluten.

Come give them a try!  You’ll be glad you did! They will be in our stores starting August 16, 2015.
