C&K Adds Two Stores

BROOKINGS, Ore. — C&K Market [3] here said it is acquiring two stores — in Corvallis and Drain, Ore. — that will be converted to the Ray's Food Place banner next month.

"The community of Philomath is a natural fit with our company's core competencies of quality, service and local offerings," said Alan Nidiffer, executive vice president. He said Drain is a rural town with deep roots in the logging industry, and C&K intends to be a neighborhood market to the towns of Drain, Yoncolla and Elkton.

C&K operates 62 supermarkets and 13 pharmacies in Oregon and Northern California.
