The UPS Store opens new store next to Cub Foods

When Dee and Steve Bergschneider opened Mail Boxes Etc. in the Westview Center eight years ago, the location made perfect sense. They were next to a bustling grocery store, the ideal placement for their business.

But not long after they moved in, the grocery store moved out.

Consider that problem finally solved.

Last week, the Bergschneiders moved their business, now known as The UPS Store, next to Cub Foods. They're now located between Great Clips and the AT&T store.

The expanded foot traffic that a grocery store brings is perfect for a business like Bergschneiders', and Dee said the new location will be more convenient for her customers.

"My customers are out here having lunch," she said. "They're out here buying their groceries. The convenience that this offers my customers is great."

The UPS Store has two employees, plus Bergschneider. Beth Morstad and Ellen Bergschneider, Dee's daughter, are the employees.

"I think it's great that Ellen has been exposed to this business environment," Bergschneider said. "I think it's important for your kids to see you work."

The store is a one-stop shop for business services. They rent mailboxes to businesses that want a street address; they ship UPS packages; they do custom packaging; they have full-service copying, printing, laminating and design services; and they sell moving boxes.

Their new address is 1807 Market Boulevard. Store hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Web site is www.theupsstorelocal.com/4008, and the phone number is 438-5460.
