WinCo opening five new stores in Utah

(Daily Herald) Move over Buy Low Market and Wal-Mart, frugal Utah County shoppers will soon have another option.

WinCo Foods LLC, a Boise, Idaho-based discount grocery chain, is expanding into Utah with the launch of its first two stores in Midvale and West Valley on Oct. 19, and plans to open three additional stores including one in Orem by May 2010. The other two are in Roy and Ogden.

WinCo, which stands for Winning Company, will be open 24-7 and features a large selection of groceries, fresh meat, fish and produce, bulk foods, bakery and a deli. The store, which averages about 94,000 square feet in size, will hire about 225 employees and up to nine managers.

"We've had our eye on Utah for about 10 years. This is a very good market for us because the core customer base is comprised of young growing families living on a budget. That's the demographics of much of Utah," said Michael Read, WinCo's vice president of public and legal affairs.
