We are donating $7.50 to Second Harvest Heartland for each story we receive.

Second Harvest works to reinvent hunger relief through leadership and innovation. In 2012, the organization collected, warehoused and distributed more than 76 million pounds of food. Its fleet of trucks travels nearly half a million miles a year, picking up food donations and delivering them to local food shelves, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior community centers and children's after school programs. Lunds and Byerly’s is proud to partner with this vital community organization.

75 Years of Growing Together

Russell T. Lund, Sr., founder and Tres Lund, president and CEO

We began with one store at Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis in 1939. Over the past 75 years, our one store became a family of 24 stores throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding area. During that time, we have grown not just in location, but grown together as people: employees, customers and the community.

Today, we continue to differentiate our stores through our unique product selection and partnerships with trend-forward companies to provide customers a sensational shopping experience. We are excited to be a part of this community now and in the future—from expanding to new locations in downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul, to creating new experiences at our Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen, to refreshing some of our legacy stores.

Thank you for being part of our story. We look forward to sharing the next 75 years with you.
