Lunds & Byerlys Announces Plans for New Store in Saint Paul's Highland Bridge Development

Lunds and Byerlys to Anchor Highland Bridge Development in Saint Paul with Ryan Companies
Saint Paul, MN
Sep 15, 2020

Lund Food Holdings, Inc. has entered into a long-term lease agreement with Ryan Companies to open a full-service Lunds & Byerlys grocery store in the Highland Bridge development on the former Ford site in St. Paul’s Highland Park neighborhood. A video was shared for the announcement, which can be found at

The new 51,000-square-foot grocery store is anticipated to open in 2022 and will feature the best of what Lunds & Byerlys has to offer, including an extensive selection of prepared foods, specialty products and two levels of covered parking. The new grocery store will anchor the first large mixed-use project at Highland Bridge, which will also include 230 apartments. 

“It has been with a tremendous amount of pride that we have served the Highland Park community for more than 37 years, and we’re excited to open a new store less than a block away that will create an enhanced shopping experience for our customers,” said Tres Lund, CEO of Lunds & Byerlys. “This new store will be nearly 20% larger than our current store, so we can meet the needs of today’s customers and the many future customers we’ll serve as the community continues to grow.”

The existing Lunds & Byerlys at 2128 Ford Parkway will remain open until the grand opening of the new store to ensure customers have uninterrupted access to Lunds & Byerlys products and services. The general shopping pattern in the grocery aisles will be similar to the existing store’s aisles to alleviate the typical disruption caused by creating new in-store shopping patterns. Most important, Lunds & Byerlys will maintain the same world class team in place, many of whom have served the Highland Park community for decades. 

“Lunds & Byerlys is the perfect anchor to the retail at Highland Bridge,” said Maureen Michalski, Vice President of Development at Ryan Companies. “Grocery is a critical component to the success of a neighborhood, and no one can match Lund’s passion for quality and their long-term commitment to the Highland Park neighborhood.”
