The Shopper

The Freeborn County Shopper began serving the city of Albert Lea and a large share of Southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa in 1974. Originally it was called the Showcase Shopper. The Shopper is distributed every Tuesday to 18,000 homes in Albert Lea and the surrounding areas.

The Showcase Shopper was renamed the "Freeborn County Shopper" in March of 1977 following its acquisition by Shopper Enterprises. In August of 1995 the Freeborn County Shopper along with its sister shopper in Austin Minnesota, The Mower County Shopper, and the Web press facility, Central Graphics, in Blue Earth Minnesota was purchased by Boone Newspapers. The three separate facilities comprised the company known as "Southern Minnesota Shoppers Inc."

Throughout the years the Freeborn County Shopper has always made a strong commitment to providing the highest quality service to our advertisers and readers. We believe in producing a top quality advertising publication that serves as the primary advertising source in Freeborn County on a weekly basis. The staff at the Freeborn County Shopper has over 100 years of experience in the Shopper business and are here to serve all of your advertising needs!

Your Success its our Goal.
