MCKENZIE BRIDGE, Oregon (STPNS) -- WALTERVILLE: C&K Market, Inc. announced on Tuesday that it will be closing its location at 39317 McKenzie Highway in Walterville at 10 p.m. on Sunday, September 8th. “We would like to thank the Walterville community and the many McKenzie River Valley tourists for their support of our store,” said Greg Sandeno, President and Chief Executive Officer of C&K Market, Inc. “Our intent is to offer jobs, within our family of stores, to all current employees.”
The decision to exit the Walterville market was made this month as part of the Brookings based grocery chain’s evaluation of opportunities to strengthen company operations. In June, the Waldport C&K Market was closed but kept the doors remained open at the Ray’s Food Place in Waldport.
“The Walterville store has not been profitable for quite some time,” explained Sandeno “despite some excellent efforts by our employees, we have not been able to reposition it to better compete against the increased competitive pressures we are seeing in today’s retail landscape.”
