Lunds and Byerly’s grocery stores will all soon be rebranded under one name.

Edina-based parent company Lunds Food Holdings is rebranding its 26 full-service grocery stores as “Lunds & Byerlys.”

The Woodbury Byerly’s will be the first to get a new sign during a grand reopening ceremony Thursday. The rest of the company’s stores will take the new name in May.

One exception to the change will be Lunds & Byerlys Kitchen, a small format store/restaurant hybrid that opened in Wayzata in spring 2014.

Lunds acquired Byerly’s in 1997. The two companies merged operations but until now kept their separate monikers.

“It’s a natural next step to combine our names as yet another exciting evolution of our brand,” CEO and President Tres Lund said in a new release.
