During normal times, you can find Minnesota Parent at more than 1,000 free rack sites in the Twin Cities.
Unlike newsstand magazines, our copies are always free — unless you want them mailed to your home every month. (That costs $18 a year.)
During the pandemic and the ensuing lockdown, we’re actually still delivering copies at independent grocery stores (see the list below), Walgreens locations, many childcare centers (list below) and anywhere else that’s still open during this crisis. (As a news organization, we’re deemed an “essential business,” so that’s why we’re able to continue operations.)
If you’re used to using our rack finder page, please forgive us. It’s down at the moment and we won’t be reinstating it until after the pandemic passes and we are at full delivery capacity.
If you’re not able to pick us up while you’re out for essentials, you can virtually flip through the pages of our e-edition at issuu.com/minnesotaparent, or you can explore all the latest articles at mnparent.com.
Finally, if you’ve always wanted to get Minnesota Parent at home by mail, now is a great time to subscribe. It’s $18 a year. Sign up at mnparent.com/subscribe.
