COLLINS FEED & SEED P urchased b y Lo c a l R oc he st er En tr e pr e ne ur

R

O C H E S T E R , M I N N . – C o l l i n s F e e d & S e e d C e n t e r, a Rochester landmark for more than 70 years, has been purchased by local entrepreneur Jon Zimmerman and his wife, Stacie. The couple plan to enhance the 15,000-square-foot business operation to encourage increased local sales and start positioning the business as a destination attraction.

“Collins Feed & Seed has remarkable potential for growth,” says Jon Zimmerman, owner of Red Nose Lighting and Polytek Surface Coatings in Rochester. “There are more than 100,000 quality antiques at this location that have never really been promoted in the past. There’s also everything from bird houses to pet supplies to holiday decorations to lawn and garden and more. “This is truly an old-fashioned general store capturing a lifetime of memories. We plan to enhance this operation with new marketing and branding efforts. Our goal is to stand on the shoulders of the business’s successful past to make this store a cultural enhancement for downtown Rochester.” Originally opened in 1946 by the Stoppel brothers, the business was run as Stoppel Feed & Seed for 28 years. Brothers Fabian, Raymond and Erwin sold typical farmrelated items including animal feeds, seed corn, field seed and fertilizer. The 22-foot-wide store had a steady business and eventually moved into selling pet food and supplies, lawn and garden items and water-softener supplies.

When the Stoppels retired in 1974 the store was sold to John Collins and renamed Collins Feed & Seed Center. Randy Collins, son of John Collins, took over the store in the 1980s. Since that time, Randy and Ann Collins have


FAMILY

SUCCESS

successfully run the store, which still has its original wood floors, sells stacks of feed and seed, plus antiques they have acquired over time. “We want to build on the family feeling and history of this location,” says Zimmerman, who grew up in Rochester. “My family is now eager to start the next chapter of our lives as the new owners of this incredible property. We’re very fortunate that Randy and Ann will remain with us on a part time basis to help transition us into this exciting new business endeavor.”

The Zimmermans intend to hire additional staffing in the near future for the location and coordinate some remodeling efforts. The antiques portion of the business will be rebranded as “All American Antiques” and will remain within the store in downtown Rochester. Plans also call for launching a marketing agency in the structure for Collins Feed and Seed that will also be available to help other local businesses.

A NEW

FAMILY AFFAIR

The new ownership by the Zimmermans means getting their entire family involved in the operation. “Two of our sons are old enough to immediately work at Collins Feed and Seed,” says Stacie Zimmerman. “They may help us create an oldfashioned candy counter or develop a Christmas corner in the store. We’re hoping they will work with us as we increase the focus on feed and seed, re-position antiques in the store, and continue the free local delivery service started by the Collins family.” Among the wide variety of antiques available at Collins Feed and Seed, visitors will find old manual typewriters, heritage quilts, clock collections, historic pictures, collectable toys and figurines, sleds, glass wear and crock wear. “Stepping inside this store is equivalent to stepping back in time,” says Zimmerman. “There are so many quality antiques and collections in here that a visitor will be dazzled. Treasures are literally tucked throughout this incredible building.”

Collins Feed and Seed Center is located at 411 2nd Ave., NW in downtown Rochester. The store is open 8:00am to 5:30pm weekdays, 8:00am to 2:00pm Saturdays and is closed on Sundays. Jon Zimmerman, a dedicated entrepreneur and lifelong Rochester resident, owns Zimprovements with his wife, Stacie. The family-owned company has a network of small businesses well known to Rochester residents, including Red Nose Lighting, Rocheter Outdoor Living (selling and installing retractable awnings and shade products), and Polytek Surface Coatings (installing garage floor coatings and commercial concrete coatings). The company’s most recent addition, STŌNWORKS, sells and installs stone panels for shower, bath and kitchen applications. Zimprovements has a showroom facility within the Airport Industrial Park located at 6747 10th Ave., SW in Rochester, Minn.

The City of Zumbrota warmly welcomes you to enjoy all of our fantastic amenities. A must see for all visitors is the Historic Covered Bridge spanning the Zumbro River at West Avenue. Minnesota’s only remaining original covered bridge is listed on the National Historic Register. It has been restored to its authentic state, reflecting the heritage of early pioneer settlers. The bridge is nestled just upstream from its original location over the Zumbro River in the 85-acre Covered Bridge Park. Kid’s Kingdom in Covered Bridge Park is also the trailhead for the Goodhue Pioneer State Trail, a multi-modal trail which connects with the cities of Goodhue and Red Wing. So please, take the time to check out the many exciting opportunities Zumbrota has to offer!

Rochester is a unique city with a welcoming Midwest flavor, a small-town feel and an evergrowing sophistication. Nestled in the Zumbro River Valley, Rochester was discovered in 1854 by a government surveying party from Winona. Population at the time was 1,500 (30 times the original 50 settlers after an advertising campaign succeeded in extolling the land’s virtues). Rochester has been expanding and developing ever since, boasting a world-class medical center, expanding job market, cutting edge technology, excellent schools and a livable, safe environment. Money Magazine frequently votes Rochester “Best Place to Live in the U.S.” Since the first votes in the 1990’s, the city has grown 33 percent from a population of 86,000 to 114,011 plus (2016 U.S Census Bureau). The city is also considered a “Best Small City For Working Women.” Unemployment is low and salaries are higher than average, with women making 90 percent of men’s salaries.

RECESSION RESISTANT

As things change, some things stay the same, and it’s all good for Rochester. In 1961, Sales Management magazine listed Rochester as one of its “markets on the move,” pointing out

that the city was moving forward while much of the country was in a recession. Urban and economic theorist Richard Florida recently ranked Rochester among the top 20 metros with projected job growth in “creative class” jobs—health care, science, technology, law, education, the arts and media—through 2020 (The Atlantic). Rochester’s quality of life and prosperous business climate make it a desirable place to live and work. Cost of living is 7 percent lower than the U.S. average. Its commute is the shortest—average 14 minutes—of the nation’s 300 largest cities. There’s an excellent park system for walking, biking and outdoor family activities. “Historic Bluff Country” to the south, the Mississippi River to the east, rolling farmlands to the west, and the Twin Cities to the north border Rochester and neighboring communities.

MAYO CLINIC, IBM

A devastating tornado struck Rochester in 1883. William Worrall Mayo, the country doctor, sought help from the Sisters of St. Francis to care for over 100 injured patients. When the crisis passed, Mother Alfred Moes offered to raise money to build a hospital if Dr. Mayo and his sons, Will and Charlie, would serve as surgeons. Today, Mayo Clinic is the largest not-forprofit medical center in the world. The Clinic employs nearly 34,600 people at its

City on the Move Rochester campus. Approximately 2,400 are physicians and scientists. The opening of Mayo’s Gonda Building in 2001 created the largest interconnected medical facility in the world. Opened in 2015, a $188 million, 100,000-square-foot proton beam therapy center offers innovative cancer treatments. IBM, like Mayo Clinic, is an “anchor” company in Rochester. “Big Blue” broke ground in 1956. Employees number around 2,790 (2013), two times more than the number of employees in the 1950s. The main campus has grown to 3.1 million square feet, more than half the size of the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Other major employers include Charter Communications, City of Rochester, Federal Medical Center, Kahler Hotels, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Olmsted County, Olmsted Medical Center, and Seneca Foods.

INNOVATION, GROWTH, INVESTMENT

Destination Medical Center (DMC) is the biggest and boldest expansion plan in Rochester’s 164-year history. With the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in the city’s backyard, DMC is a $5.6 billion economic development initia-

tive promoting Rochester as a premier global destination for health and wellness over the next 20 years. Three million people a year visit Rochester, primarily for Mayo Clinic. The goal of DMC is to double the number of visitors to 6 to 7 million. Downtown development has been a topic of conversation since the famous Chateau Theater opened its doors in 1927. DMC plans include additional downtown Mayo facilities, office space, biotech and pharmaceutical firms. Housing, restaurants, hotels, and retail establishments will be needed to accommodate visitors and the employees required to fill over 30,000 new jobs. DMC, according to plan, will have a positive affect not only Rochester, but also Olmsted County and the state of Minnesota. In addition to the $585 million in state money, Mayo Clinic, private investors and the City of Rochester will invest nearly $6 billion. With changes on its horizon, Rochester must continue fine-tuning its goals to meet the inevitable challenges ahead: aging and retiring Baby Boomers, diversity, affordable housing for students and job seekers, transportation, crime and population increases. If history is an indicator, Rochester’s growth will continue on a positive, upward trend.
