Cub Foods store receives LEED Gold certification


STILLWATER, Minn. Cub Foods and its parent company, Supervalu, announced that Cub has become the first grocer in Minnesota to be awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold NC2.2 Certification for one of its stores.

The Cub store, located in the Phalen neighborhood of St. Paul, is one of just three grocery stores in the nation to successfully achieve LEED Gold Certification.

“Cub Foods has a vested interest in supporting the communities where we do business, and contributing to the redevelopment of St. Paul’s East Side was a natural fit for us,” said Brian Huff, president of Cub Foods. “Choosing to build a LEED Gold Certified building was another example of Cub’s dedication to preserving the environment for future generations.”

Gold Certification is the second highest certification that can be achieved according to the USGBC. Certification is a rigorous process, assigning points for each green feature incorporated into the building. LEED Gold Certification is based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impact the project and the broader community.
