The fast-growing discount grocer WinCo Foods plans to open its second store in Nampa on March 2.
WinCo chose to open at Nampa Gateway Center — at Garrity Boulevard south of Interstate 84 — because shoppers had been “very vocal” about their desire for a store in that area, said a company spokesman.
“It’s a place that could really use a WinCo,” he said.
The Boise-based company’s existing Nampa store, at 2020 Caldwell Blvd., is one of the busiest in the entire chain, he said.
The 85,000-square-foot store will have 180 to 200 employees, he said.
The opening date was reported Tuesday by the Idaho Business Review and Idaho Press-Tribune.
The employee-owned company also plans to build a new store in south Meridian near Eagle Road and I-84, at 2600 E. Overland Road.
