C&K MARKET TO CLOSE DOORS IN WALTERVILLE

BROOKINGS, OR (August 20, 2013) – C&K Market, Inc., announced today that it will be closing its location at 39317 McKenzie Highway Walterville, OR at 10:00pm on Sunday, September 8, 2013.  “We would like to thank the Walterville community and the many McKenzie River Valley tourists for their support of our store,” stated Greg Sandeno, President and Chief Executive Officer of C&K Market, Inc. “Our intent is to offer jobs, within our family of stores, to all current employees.”

The difficult decision to exit the Walterville market was made this month as part of an evaluation of opportunities to strengthen company operations.  "The Walterville store has not been profitable for quite some time,” explained Sandeno “despite some excellent efforts by our employees, we have not been able to reposition it to better compete against the increased competitive pressures we are seeing in today’s retail landscape."
