Yoke’s closing Spokane Valley food mart

MONDAY, SEPT. 20, 2010, 1:40 P.M.

Lease expires the end of this year

Spokane Valley food retailer Yoke’s Fresh Market plans to close its supermarket at Sprague and Progress because it’s been unable to renew the property lease.

In an announcement Monday, company CEO John Bole said no exact closing date has been determined.

Yoke’s has operated the store since 1985, at 15111 E. Sprague.

Bole said Yoke’s will keep the store open to sell down inventory and make an easier transition of staff and equipment to its other Spokane stores.

The current property lease is set to expire Dec. 31.
