ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - Coborn's has big plans for the site of the former St. Cloud YMCA building on Northway Drive.

The grocery retailer is moving ahead with plans to build a fresh concept grocery store on the site.

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 gas pumps.

The company is working with the City of St. Cloud on development plans with an anticipated opening date sometime in 2018.

St. Cloud City Council at its Monday meeting will consider Coborn's request to allow commercial use on the property and construction of the 21,000 square foot store.

A public hearing has been recommended. 

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