Members can save an average of 25% on items such as fresh fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs, lean meats, whole-grain breads, cereals, juices and beans offered from over 200 brands. The savings are available at any of the Coborn’s, Cash Wise, Marketplace Foods and Kowalski’s locations, which have joined the stores already participating including Cub®, Lunds & Byerlys®, Hornbacher’s® and Rainbow® Foods.
