Lueken's stores now Ticketmaster outlet

BEMIDJI - Lueken's Village Foods stores here are now Ticketmaster outlets.

The partnership with the Sanford Center, announced Tuesday, allows patrons at both stores to purchase tickets to events at the facility and all Ticketmaster events, including concerts and professional sports.

"The partnership between The Sanford Center, Lueken's Village Foods, and Ticketmaster will make purchasing tickets for Sanford Center events more convenient for the residents of Bemidji, and will allow both Lueken's and The Sanford Center to cross promote events on multiple levels," a news release said.

"I'm glad we were able to partner with Lueken's. They offer two great locations and are open seven days a week. Accessibility to tickets is key to the success of an event," said Roger Swanson, executive director of the Sanford Center.

Ticketmaster has installed the equipment at the stores and trained staff Tuesday to operate the system used to sell tickets.

Patrons can purchase tickets from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
