WinCo shopping for site at 82nd Avenue and Powell Boulevard

WinCo Foods is the grocer seeking to lease the former Food 4 Less site at Powell Street Station on Southeast 82nd and Powell Boulevard.

Company officials are presenting their plans for the full-service store on Thursday night to the South Tabor Neighborhood Association.

The addition of a third WinCo on Portland's east side should address some of the concerns about the dearth of full-service groceries in East Portland.

WinCo, based in Boise, has two other stores on the east side of Portland, at 1222 NE 102nd Ave. and 1950 N.E. 122nd Ave., plus a store in Tigard at 7501 S.W. Dartmouth St.

WinCo is known as a low-price grocer that often attracts customers from several miles away because of its large variety and competitive prices.
