BROOKINGS, Ore. — C&K Market here said it plans to reopen the 7,000-square-foot former Yachats Village Market next month and operate it as a possible prototype for other small-format stores. "We're flirting with the idea of opening smaller stores," Doug Nidifer, chairman, president and chief executive officer, C&K Market, told SN.
The Yachats store, located on Oregon's central coast, will feature "more of a convenience-store offering in a pared-down footprint." It will operate under the C&K banner — the first store to open under the company's name since C&K began using the Ray's banner on most locations in 1968, Nidifer said.
The 59-store chain has one other store of 7,000 square feet, he noted. The former Yachats store, which closed in February, is undergoing renovations, with plans to open for business sometime next month, the company said.
