C & K PLANNING SUTHERLIN STORE Print E-mail
July 07, 2000 11:00 pm

Brookings-based C&K Market Inc., parent company of Rays Food Place, has announced plans to construct a $43,000 square foot supermarket in Sutherlin.

Company president Doug Nidiffer said that all obstacles have been removed and construction of the store is to begin as soon as permits are issued.

We are anticipating final drawings from our architect very soon and will commence construction the next day, Nidiffer said.

Site preparation has already begun, and the company plans to have the building open for business by the first of the year.

The supermarket will be in the newly-developed Oak Hills Plaza shopping center near Dairy Queen and Taco Bell at Highway 138 and the Interstate 5 interchange.

It anticipates employing approximately 110 people. Interviews for all positions will begin about 90 days before the store opens, Nidiffer said.

The store will feature the amenities offered at other Rays Food Place stores.

Delivering high quality products and services for the lowest possible price is the hallmark of the Rays Food Place chain, Nidiffer said. With 44 stores and 45 years in the business, the company has the track record to back that claim.

  • Asian stocks subdued in holiday thin trade, Ukraine tensions mount
    Asian stock markets started the week on a subdued note on Monday, as tensions in Ukraine kept investors cautious amid the absence of catalysts as several markets remained closed for Easter holiday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan inched down 0.1 percent. Japan's Nikkei stock average, one of the few major stock markets that traded on Friday, edged up 0.5 percent. Global markets have been buffeted in recent weeks by tensions in Ukraine, signs of slowing growth in China and uncertainty over when the U.S. Federal Reserve would start to tighten interest rates.
  • GM to battle VW in China with $12 billion investment and new plants
    U.S. car giant General Motors Corp (GM) (GM) plans to invest $12 billion in China from 2014 to 2017 and build more plants next year as it competes with aggressive rivals in the world's largest auto market. GM expects its China sales to expand 8-10 percent this year, in line with the overall growth of the Chinese market, where foreign firms, such as Volkswagen AG (VOW3.DE), and domestic players like SAIC Motor Corp vie for more market share. In total we are investing $12 billion between 2014 and 2017," Matt Tsien, president of GM China, said at the Auto China show in Beijing. GM plans to build five more plants in China next year, as part of its efforts to ramp up manufacturing capacity there by 65 percent by 2020, executives said on Sunday.
  • Pipeline delay gives boost to Obama's political base
    The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama's liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project's effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada's oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012, to sit out the November 4 congressional elections. The State Department's announcement on Friday that it would give government agencies more time to study the project was seen by strategists from both parties as a move to prevent that and boost Obama in the eyes of his supporters.
