WinCo Foods to open 100th store in Lewisville, Texas

RBR Staff Writer Published 05 May 2015

WinCo Foods will open the employee owned chain's 100th store in Lewisville, Texas on Thursday 7 May this year.

The Lewisville store is located at 1288 W. Main St. and is the fifth WinCo Foods store to open in Texas. Occupying approximately 83,000 square feet the store will initially employ approximately 150 individuals, about 140 of whom have been hired locally. Founded as a single warehouse format store in 1967, in Boise, Idaho, the chain grew steadily and in recent years more dramatically toward this 100 store milestone. We invite the community to help us celebrate our success as we continue to grow in the greater DFW market and across the West.

WinCo Foods is an employee owned discount grocery chain known primarily for being the "Supermarket Low Price Leader" in each market it serves. Lewisville Store Manager, Kathy Johnson, transfers to the store from Everett, Washington, with 16 years of experience with the company. Assistant Managers Brandon McCain and Thomas Robbins transfer in from Ft. Worth and Sacramento respectively. Kathy, her management team and the store employees are proud and excited to open the company's 100th store, which is a significant milestone for the company. They are eager to assist new customers with a great combination of customer service and low pricing. Kathy indicates that there is good community buzz and feels that excitement for the new store is building among potential customers. Customers will shortly be receiving a special grand opening mailer highlighting extraordinary deals, product giveaways, prizes and other festivities available during the week of May 17th. Kathy says "as employee owners, all of us here at WinCo look forward to giving the Lewisville community an exciting new shopping option that provides great pricing and a terrific customer experience."

The store features WinCo's "Wall of Values" at the entry, which displays a wide variety of high volume products with exceptionally good pricing. The store features large fresh produce, bulk foods, meat, deli, seafood, and bakery departments. The unique bulk foods department allows customers to buy only the amounts they want and displays nearly 700 items, including many natural food products, some organics, snacks, candies, cereals, flours, pastas, spices and more.
