Chris’ Food Center Takes Over Operations Of Nelson’s In Pine City
After watching Nelson’s Market in Mora close earlier this year, Pine City residents have been concerned that the Nelson’s in Pine City was also in danger. Nelson’s had previously closed a location in North Branch as well.
Although the longstanding ownership won’t be in charge any more, Nelson’s isn’t closing it’s doors completely.
Nelson’s Market in Pine City have sold their operations to Chris’ Food Center, a very good grocer based in Sandstone.
Employees inside the store have confirmed the change, which is also announced on the sign outside (Pictured below). Those same employees were appreciative of the change, and reported that all current employees were allowed to keep their jobs.
A quick trip around inside the store will reveal that shelves are being restocked, and items replenished. Chis’ Food Center is known for it’s quality meats and produce, and much of the same is already on display in Pine City.
Craig Thorvig is the President of Chris’ Food Center in Sandstone. Thorvig will also be in charge of this new location, although a final deal between the Nelson’s and the Thorvig’s hasn’t been announced.
