BOISE, Idaho — Waremart by WinCo will open its doors at 5450 River Rd N in Keizer, OR, on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018. This is the third store in the chain to carry the Waremart name and WinCo Foods' 119th store overall.
"Keizer is the perfect kind of community for a store like this one," said a WinCo Foods spokesperson. "Waremart by WinCo is designed to meet the need for both quality groceries and the lowest possible prices while offering the world class customer service our employee-owners are famous for."
While smaller than a typical WinCo, the 40,000 sq. ft. store is designed specifically for markets like Keizer and carries the name "Waremart" in homage to the company's origins. The layout will include WinCo Foods' trademark "Wall of Values" at the entrance and will offer a wide assortment of grocery items along with full produce and meat departments, along with a wide array of WinCo's high quality private label brands.
Bulk foods, a favorite at every WinCo Foods store, will also be fully available at Waremart in Keizer.
"Bulk foods offers more than 700 items available in whatever quantity the customer desires," said WinCo's spokesperson. "There's an abundance of rice varieties, dried beans, pastas, baking ingredients, cereals, snacks, candies and pet foods. Customers love that they buy two teaspoons of something or a 50-lb. sack of it."
The Waremart by WinCo store will also carry a variety of organic, gluten-free and natural foods items.
WinCo is an employee-owned discount grocery chain known primarily for being the "Supermarket Low Price Leader." Founded as Waremart in Boise, Idaho in 1967, WinCo Foods changed its name in 1999 to reflect the employee ownership aspect of the company, but retained the rights to the Waremart name.
The new store employs approximately 75-80 individuals and will be open daily from 6 am to 11 pm.
