SISTERS, Ore. — Dan Fouts, retired quarterback for the San Diego Chargers and a resident here, is scheduled to participate in tomorrow's opening ceremonies of Ray's Food Place, a 43,500-square-foot replacement store operated by C&K Market, a 60-store chain based in Brookings, Ore. The local store was designed with a rustic facade to conform with Sisters' building codes, which require that businesses maintain the look of an old Western town. The up-to-date interior will feature expanded departments storewide, with new energy-efficient lighting, racking and refrigerated cases; a wider selection of organics; a scratch bakery; and a wide selection of local microbrews alongside national and international beers, plus a wine steward overseeing an expanded wine section. In other news, C&K said it tripled customer donations this year for breast cancer research and awareness within the communities in which it operates through the Ray Foundation — collecting $93,343 at the checkstands, compared with $25,000 in the program's first year.
