Rosauers to close Deer Park store

Rosauers Supermarkets Inc. will close its Deer Park store next month, President Jeff Philipps said Tuesday.

More shopper travel to Spokane and competition from a nearby Yoke’s Fresh Market, coupled with the economy’s slowdown, have changed the Deer Park marketplace since Rosauers bought a former Excel Foods locaion on South Fir in 2001, he said.

“We have long considered an update to the facility to better compete,” Philipps said, “but the current site is landlocked by other businesses, and would require an investment that is not economically feasible.”

Employees may receive counseling, severance or help with placement at Yoke’s, he said.

Employees were informed of the company’s decision Monday.
