As a result of the current impacts of COVID-19, we are unable to host this event in person at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, MN on June 16th as originally planned. We have considered many alternatives and are excited to announce that we will be holding a virtual ESOP event this year instead! Through the wonders of technology, our new virtual event will still take place on Tuesday, June 16th.

While we will not be hosting an in-person event this year, we still invite you to participate with us. Our vendors are a significant piece of our ESOP event success and we thank you for that.

NEW THIS YEAR: In lieu of samples this year, we are asking all vendors to please consider supplying us with one or both of the following items to give to our ESOP eligible employees as part of this year’s ESOP event. Please confirm your participation and offer by MONDAY, JUNE 1st.

  1. A HIGH-VALUE DIGITAL COUPON on an item you were planning to showcase. It could be a timeless favorite or a new item that you’ve recently introduced that is now in our stores that you would like our employees to know more about, as well as try. This is terrific way to build awareness of your brand and / or product! We will do all the set up so no need for you to supply any paper coupons! Coupons will be added to an employee’s MORE Rewards account.
    a. Details needed for coupons (to be filled out on the vendor form below):
    • Is it a $ Discount coupon ( i.e. $2.00 off)
    • Is it a FREE item coupon (include exact specs of product with UPC)
    • Is it a % off coupon
    b. Coupons will be valid 6/16/20 thru 6/30/20
    We will invoice vendors after 6/30/20 once redemptions are in.
    The coupons you provide will be distributed to approximately 2800 ESOP eligible employee MORE Rewards accounts as digital offers they would digitally “clip” to redeem. Based on past history, you can expect that redemptions will be somewhere between 500 and 1000 total.
  2. A DOOR PRIZE: In lieu of any fees, please consider providing a “big ticket” prize for employees who will be registering for door prizes. This could include electronics, gift certificates, art, souvenir items, apparel, or other prize of perceived value. In consideration of social distancing, please refrain from donating any event tickets.
  3. For tax reporting purposes, please provide the dollar value of your prize when you send it. Our employees greatly appreciate the prize donations you so generously provide…it’s an event highlight. Please send prizes by June 12 to:

Diane Skillingstad
Coborn’s, Inc.
1921 Coborn Boulevard
St. Cloud, MN 56301

Please fill out the vendor participation portal by Monday, June 1. Please send prizes by Friday, June 12.
