WinCo opens in Oregon City
Employee-owned WinCo Foods opened its 123rd store — and it's 23rd in Oregon — on June 21 at 19701 Highway 213, in Oregon City.
The 64,000-square-foot grocery story is located at the former location of the Haggen Food & Pharmacy that closed in 2016.
"We're very excited to bring a new employee-owned store to the good people of Oregon City," said company spokesperson Noah Fleisher. "With more than 20 stores in the state, we consider this our backyard. We know our customers here and, better than that, they know us."
The new WinCo Foods will be staffed by more than 140 full- and part-time employees from the surrounding community. The store will contain WinCo's trademark "Wall of Values" at the entrance, as well as a wide assortment of grocery items, along with a full produce section and meat and deli departments.
Another WinCo trademark at the new store is the 700-plus item bulk foods department that includes a multitude of rice varieties, dried beans, pastas, baking ingredients, cereals, snacks, candies and pet foods.
"Our customers love that they can buy as little or as much as they like," Fleisher said. "Whether it's two teaspoons of a specific spice or a 50-pound sack of flour. On top of all this, we also carry a variety of organic, gluten-free and natural food items, all clearly labeled."
