LUVERNE — Fareway Stores, Inc. hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday at its new Fareway Meat Market, 220 W. Main St., Luverne. The renovated 2,300-square-foot store provides fresh meat, with a full-service butcher counter.

This is Fareway’s first, stand-alone meat market in Minnesota, and offers main course options, a variety of sides, regional items, and more.

Becker Transports of Wadena, Minnesota, started in with a 1985 Mack Superliner bought in 2010. A dozen years later, that ‘85 Mack is still putting in the miles as Becker Transport has grown into a regional trucking company, hauling loads like farm machinery, construction equipment, gravel and grain across the upper Midwest.
CHANDLER — The Monogram Foods Loves Kids Foundation, the charitable fund of Monogram Foods, announced that 11 local organizations will receive a 2022 grant. A committee of team members from Monogram Foods in Chandler divided $60,000 among the charitable organizations. The initiatives funded by each grant are as follows:
The North Dakota Mill and Elevator opened its doors in Grand Forks on Oct. 20, 1922, after several decades of attempts by farmers to halt the hold the grain trade had on pricing and grain grading.

“We are excited for this first Fareway Meat Market in Minnesota,” said Fareway President Garrett S. Piklapp. “Thanks to local city and economic development officials and property owners for helping make this project possible. We look forward to serving and becoming an integral part of the community.”

“The City of Luverne and the surrounding area are very excited for Fareway Meat Market on Main Street in Luverne,” said Mayor Pat Baustian. “I am sure our citizens will enjoy the new meat market for years to come. Congratulations!”

“It is with a great deal of pride and enthusiasm that we welcome Fareway Meat Market to Luverne,” said Michael Cox. “Our community has a rich history of business opportunities with proven results. Fareway Meat Market will be a great business partner for our community and the surrounding area.”


“On behalf of the 250-plus members of the Luverne Area Chamber and the citizens of Luverne and Rock County, I am honored to welcome Fareway Meat Market,” said Luverne Area Chamber Executive Director Jane Lanphere. “We look forward to being able to purchase high-quality, reasonably priced meat that Fareway is known for. Our very best and sincere wishes for strong and vibrant sales. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to make Rock County a better place to live, work and play!”

The new store will be managed by Market Manager Brian Tieskotter. The store opened Wednesday.
