MISSOULA — The wait is almost over with Missoula’s newest grocery store set to open on Monday.
WinCo Foods will open its new store on South Reserve Street and MTN News got a look inside as workers continue to prepare for the grand opening.
WinCo purchased the old Shopko building in October of 2019, roughly six months after the retailer closed.
But WinCo already had eyes on Montana. In March of 2019 -- just as Shopko was closing -- WinCo moved into the state, opening stores in Billings and Helena.
WinCo is employee-owned and known for low prices and unique items.
The company became a founding member of Certified Employee-Owned, an alliance of companies dedicated to employee ownership.
