What is Labels for Learning and how can I apply?

Labels for Learning is a receipt tape program available at Marketplace Foods, Coborn’s and Cash Wise Foods stores. It rewards customers who purchase the company’s Exclusive Brands with points. These points are collected by participating schools and child care facilities and are then redeemed for cash to benefit the school or child care program. The program is as easy as 1-2-3:

  2. Customers drop receipt points in their school’s or child care program’s designated collection box (generally located at the school or care location).
  3. Throughout the school year, schools and child care programs send their receipt points to Coborn’s, Inc. for redemption.

Do you support Scrip?

Marketplace Foods offers a scrip program with a 2% discount for non-profit organizations, including churches and schools. To request a scrip order form, send an email to scrip.cards@cobornsinc.com.

All scrip orders should be completed weekly and sent to scrip.cards@cobornsinc.com by noon on Tuesdays. A minimum scrip order of $500 is required.

Scrip orders are filled on Tuesdays and either:

  • Sent to the store listed on the order for pick-up the following day at the Service Counter
  • Available to be picked up at the Coborn’s, Inc. Support Center located at 1921 Coborn Blvd. St. Cloud, MN 56301.

Payment can either be left at the store at the time of pick-up or mailed to the Coborn’s, Inc. Support Center, PO Box 6146, St. Cloud, MN 56302-6146.

How can I get on the Penny Pincher distribution list?

Our Penny Pincher mailing lists are generated by a National List Company. A "saturation mailing" is done where all households in certain zip codes or postal routes receive the mailings. We do deliver to most routes in each of our Marketplace Foods markets. Unfortunately, we are not able to add just one name to the list, we must add entire carrier routes or zip codes. If you are not receiving a Penny Pincher, there could be multiple reasons:

  • The Post Office classifies our Penny Pincher as an Advertisement. If you have signed up to receive "no junk mail" at your home, you will not receive our Penny Pincher. Please change your mailing preferences to receive it.
  • We do not mail the Penny Pincher to businesses. If your address is registered as a business, as some are, you will not receive the Penny Pincher.

If neither of the above reasons are the case, you may not be receiving it because your zip code is not part of the National List Company’s “saturation mailing.” In this case, please send an email, with your name and zip code, to contact.us@cobornsinc.com and one of our friendly employees will follow up with you. In the meantime, you are welcome to request one at the Service Counter at Marketplace Foods, beginning the first day of a Penny Pincher sale. We keep a small amount at each store for customers like you.

Why won't your store employee give out copies of the Penny Pinchers before the sale begins?

Our stores are instructed not to hand out copies of the Penny Pincher mailer until our postal window has been met. Otherwise, we would be giving out Penny Pinchers to the same people who will receive them in the mail. Because of the high quantity of Penny Pinchers being mailed, the post office has a three-day window in which to deliver all of them. We have found that, if we wait until the mailings are complete, then we only have a handful of customers not included in the list that will request a copy at the Service Counter. If you do not receive one by the first day of the promotion, you can request a copy at our Service Counter at that time.

I would like to have you remove me from your mailing list

Our mailing lists are generated by a National Mailing List Company, and we are unable to remove just one address. In order to stop the mailings, you would need to go to the Post Office or USPS.com and fill out the form that states you do not want to receive advertisements of any sort and that will remove the your name from that group of mailings (also known as “remove all junk mail”). This will eliminate you from receiving all junk mail, not just the Marketplace Foods and Cash Wise mailers. Another option is to send a request to the following address, which is a company that works with saturation mailings, and ask that they remove your address:

Mail Preference Services
Attn: Department 13509534
PO Box 282
Camel, NY 10512-0282.

This request will stop any junk mail from being sent to your home.

Please put me on the mailing list for your weekly ads!

We’re sorry but we don’t have a mailing list for our weekly ads. We insert our weekly ad in area newspapers for each of our markets. If you do not subscribe or purchase the newspaper, our ads are also delivered in various shopper publications. You can always view our ads online at www.MarketplaceFoodsWI.com/Registration. In addition, in the upper right-hand corner of the homepage, you can sign up to receive an automatic weekly email that links to our weekly ad. Our ads and coupon sheets are also always available in our stores near the front entrance.

I'm a product representative and I'd like to talk to your buyers or category managers.

Coborn’s, Inc. does not accept email solicitations. If you are a product representative, please call the Coborn’s, Inc. Support Center at 320-252-4222 and indicate to the receptionist the purpose for your call. The receptionist will then direct your call.
