ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - St. Cloud has given Coborn's the thumbs-up for a new grocery store on the site of the former St. Cloud YMCA.

The grocery retailer is moving ahead with plans to build a 21,000-square foot fresh concept grocery store on the site off Northway Drive.

The plans call for the former YMCA to be demolished.

The company says the smaller-scale store will feature everyday grocery products shoppers expect with an emphasis on fresh offerings, as well as a pharmacy and coffee shop.

Coborn's says the site's proximity to St. Cloud Technical College, the new YMCA, medical buildings and neighborhoods makes it an ideal location for a new store.

The new location will also have six gas pumps.

The company is anticipating an opening date sometime in 2018.

The new YMCA opened in May, just across the street from the old location.
