WinCo exterior

The new WinCo Foods grocery store at 24th Street West and Central Avenue opens Sunday at 9 a.m.

WinCo Foods will be open for business at 9 a.m. on March 3, a company spokesman said on Friday. 

Situated at the corner of Central Avenue and 24th Street West, WinCo occupies the lot where Kmart stood for 40 years.

The Kmart building was demolished in early 2018 and WinCo built its new store there that spring. Most exterior work on the building was completed over the summer and fall, and crews have been inside all winter finishing the store's interior. 

Ahead of its opening, the store hired 160 employees from the region. WinCo has more than 120 stores operating across the West and Pacific Northwest. A store in Helena is set to open at roughly the same time.
