C&K Markets adds two stores to existing chain

Brookings-based C&K Markets announced this week that it is adding two more stores to its chain of markets in Oregon.

C&K, which owns ShopSmart and Ray’s Food Place markets, will be taking over Select Market in Drain and the Philomath Thriftway in Philomath

Drain is a rural town with deep roots in the logging industry and is at the crossroads of Oregon Route 99 and 38, at a pass in the Coast Range on the way to the Pacific Ocean, according to a C&K press release.

 

Plans to update the interior decor and racking are  under way with a grand opening date tentatively set for Thursday, Aug. 16.

 “We are pleased to acquire the Select Market in Drain and the opportunity it affords us to serve the Drain  community and surrounding areas,” said C&K Market, Inc. Executive Vice President Alan Nidiffer.  

Highlights of the grand opening festivities will include giveaways, enter-to-wins, a free community barbecue and special product offers.

C&K recently purchased the Philomath Thriftway, located  five miles south of Corvallis (home of Oregon State University), and is significantly renovating the existing  building, which will be renamed Ray’s Food Place.

Plans for the Aug. 8 grand opening are under way with giveaways, a free community barbecue and special product offers highlighting the festivities.

“The community of Philomath is a natural fit with our companies’ core competencies of quality, service and local offerings,” said Nidiffer said.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
