WinCo Expanding to Dallas

BOISE, Idaho — WinCo Stores here said it expects to begin opening stores in the Dallas market in approximately two years.

The company is looking for potential sites now, a spokesman told SN. "Our intent is to open stores there, though it will be at least two years until we are in a position to do so," he explained. "We've been evaluating that market for some time, and we believe it will support a fair number of WinCo stores."

He said the company has not yet determined what "a fair number" would be. However, until there are enough locations to support a distribution center, WinCo expects to buy from a wholesaler, he noted.

The Dallas Morning News first reported July 18 that the chain was eyeing the Dallas market.

WinCo operates 82 stores — 32 in California, 18 in Washington, 16 in Oregon, five in Idaho, five in Utah, four in Nevada and two in Arizona. Although most are in the 92,000-square-foot to 94,000-square-foot range, it opened a store in April in Bremerton, Wash., of 55,000 square feet, "so we are able to tailor each store to the market," the spokesman said.
