Kraus-Anderson completes grocery and retail expansion of Valley Natural Foods
Grand opening set for 4:00 p.m., Thursday, January 17
BURNSVILLE, Minn. (December 2018) – To meet the ongoing growing demand for more healthy eating choices and organic foods, Valley Natural Food’s (VNF) has expanded its grocery and retail operation in Burnsville, Minn. The $8.2 million project was constructed by Kraus-Anderson and designed by Wilkus Architects.
The 24,000-square-foot remodel includes the 2017 acquisition of a building adjacent to VNF’s existing 16,000-square-foot retail center. The new building, which contains some of the latest technology in energy-efficient equipment, was renovated to add 8,000 square feet of grocery operations, including 3,000 square feet of retail space. Existing employees will staff the new facility.
A grand opening ceremony is scheduled for 4:00 – 7:00 p.m., Thursday January 17, 2019 at 13750 Country Road 11 in Burnsville. The event will feature local farmers and vendors, and will include a dedication of the Susan McGaughey Education Room, named in honor of VNF’s former general manager of 37 years.
For more than 40 years, VNF has served the southern Twin Cities metro with organic, local and natural products within its grocery, produce, meat and deli departments, and full-service wellness department. VNF’s co-op, which is owned by more than 12,000 owners, features a new deli, fresh food departments and burrito bar.
In addition, VNF has extended its hours to 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. daily to provide a new weekend brunch, catering service, community gathering space with increased seating area and education room for cooking classes.
In 2011, VNF started Valley’s Own™ Bakehouse, a gluten-free bakery in Burnsville founded on the belief that everyone should be able to enjoy great tasting baked goods. Valley’s Own™ satisfies a growing need for gluten-free products that are produced in a safe facility and are handcrafted from carefully sourced ingredients.
