Winco To Open Thursday

"Location, location, location" often is the key to success for a business. And the location of the new WinCo store as the first commercial place at the south end of Ramsey Road is key as Ramsey leads to many of the area's new neighborhoods. WinCo opens here at 7 a.m. Thursday. The 77,000-square-foot store (compares to 115,000 of the Coeur d'Alene CostCo) is described as a full-service grocery store featuring a deli, bakery and bulk foods. It will be open 24 hours daily with about 200 employees. Manager is Joel Clark. Starting in 1967 in Boise (its headquarters), WinCo (for "winning company") has 88 employee-owned stores in seven western states. Check Rosdahl, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Which competing store will Winco hurt most?
