The new Winco Foods grocery store in Coeur d' Alene is now open! The store is laid out much like the stores already in Spokane. Only a bit smaller and with a more warehouse like look. Here is what all we know of the store....
The new CdA Winco is slightly smaller then the average Winco location, Coeur d' Alene's new store is about 75,000 square feet. The store features a newer paint scheme for the company and will include more varieties of store branded items in several departments. The new store is located at 1485 W. Appleway at the corner of Appleway and Ramsey Rd.
The Coeur d' Alene Winco location ( Winco store number 101 ) is actually one of two new stores to open today for the chain, the other is located in Norco,Ca. . The new Coeur d' Alene location is ran by Joel Clark who has been with the company for over 30 years and transferred to be store manager here from Yuba City,Ca.
Like other Winco Foods locations the new store in Coeur d' Alene is a full grocery store with all the departments one would expect of a grocery store. But Winco also is well known for the chain's bulk food department which is included in the new location. Also a variety of natural foods are available with growing merchandise options. Winco is probably best known for being a " low price leader". The employee owned chain usually beats most other grocery chain's pricing, including Wal-Mart.
Winco Foods is also now one of the larger employers in the Coeur d' Alene area. The store hired 156 and had over 30 employees transfer to the new store from other locations. The store certainly had their pick of applicants as over 7,000 people applied for those almost 200 new jobs the store created.
Winco also still has 2 Spokane area locations, 1 in Spokane Valley on Sprague at Farr Rd. and in North Spokane on N. Nevada just a few blocks away from The Y.
We hope to get more info on the store and hopefully will be updating this post soon so please stay tuned!
