Caribou Coffee joins County Fair expansion in Mitchell

County Fair Food Store, of Mitchell, has announced another addition to its building expansion to be completed in the spring. Caribou Coffee is joining the project.

Caribou Coffee will be located in the west front of the grocery store, which is located at 1305 W. Havens Ave.

Established in 1990, the Minneapolis-based coffee company has grown in the last 21 years to almost 500 company-owned locations. There will now be six Caribou Coffees in South Dakota with the Mitchell location.

Overall, Caribou is located in 16 states and the District of Columbia, as well as in several countries outside the United States.

County Fair Vice President Jim Stewart said the store is happy to form a relationship with Caribou Coffee.

"We are very excited to offer more options to Mitchell," Stewart said.

In May, County Fair Food Store and Puetz Corp. announced their plans for a large expansion and renovation to the store and County Fair Plaza. A new building that houses Goodwill and other businesses already has been constructed on the plaza.
