Cornerstone Kia cares for your health


Cornerstone’s 3/27/2020 Update to Statewide “Stay-at-Home” Order 

It is our duty to do our part in this fight against the spread of COVID-19. By order of Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, we will be reducing daily staff levels and business operations to comply with “non-essential” activities. Executive Order 20-20 directs Minnesotans to stay home beginning Friday, March 27, 2020 at 11:59 pm through Friday, April 10, at 5 pm. During this time our hours will be as follows:


  • Will remain open to meet the needs of critical transportation
  • Sales hours will temporarily change to 9 am – 6 pm, Monday to Saturday
  • Pursuant to the order, “Automobile sales that are necessary to allow for essential travel, when conducted by appointment, and only when CDC and MDH guidelines, including social distancing, can be met.”

Service and Parts:

  • Will remain open to meet the needs of critical transportation
  • Service hours are temporarily changed to 7 am – 5 pm, Monday to Friday

Critical and Exempted Travel includes, but is not limited to:

“Travel to exempted activities and travel to return to a home or place of residence; seeking out medical services, including obtaining medical supplies, visiting a health professional or a veterinarian; obtaining necessary supplies, including food, beverages, gasoline and items needed to work from home; engaging in outdoor activities so long as people remain six feet apart from individuals in other households; relocating to a different home or residence if a home or residence becomes unsafe; essential intrastate and interstate travel; and taking care of others.

These changes are only intended to be temporary through this “stay-at-home” period as we collectively battle this virus together.

We’re here to help you get to where you need to go, safely. Stay Safe!

  • Following CDC, state and federal guidelines for personal hygiene, air quality, group size and workplace density.
  • Additional precautions while servicing your vehicle; including wearing latex gloves and applying disinfectant when necessary.
  • If any of our team is showing signs of illness and not feeling 100%, we have asked that they stay home. 
  • Free pick-up and delivery for vehicle service and repair work. Please call, email or chat for more details.
