Lunds & Byerlys are upscale supermarkets operating in the metro St. Paul, Minnesota, area. These once were two stores, Lunds Supermarket and Byerlys Supermarket, until 1997, when Lunds acquired Byerlys.
As of 2017, there are 27 locations. Online delivery service was added in 2006, with customers offering a choice of home delivery or in-store pickup.
Lunds was originally founded in 1922 at Hove’s Market. Russell Lund Sr. purchased a few shares in the store’s cheese and cracker department. He later founded his own popcorn, which he added to his store department and purchased even more shares in the supermarket. In 1964, Lund owned the supermarket chain and changed to name to Lunds.
In February 2020, it was discovered that four Lunds & Byerlys locations that skimmers had been added to the credit/debit card machines. The police informed the company that these skimmers only worked with “swipe” transactions and did not work for cards that contained a chip.
Lunds and Byerlys maintain a corporate office in Edina, Minnesota.
