Roseburg City Hall to Hear WinCo’s Appeal |  The business

The Kmart building, located at 2757 NW Stewart Parkway, covers 88,000 square feet. The new WinCo store would also be single-story and spread out over just under 73,000 square feet. The store will be open around-the-clock. WinCo Foods, a Boise-based supermarket chain, has submitted plans that call for demolishing the old Kmart and replacing it with a slightly smaller supermarket. Once construction begins the store should open in about a year, WinCo officials have said. WinCo plans to reconfigure the parking lot, install new landscaping and perform other improvements to the site, which covers about 9.45 acres. The property also contains the Big 5 Sporting Goods building at 2655 NW Stewart Parkway. WinCo has said it has no plans to change the current business operations of Big 5.

Safe Streets Roseburg, through its Eugene attorney Sean Malone, has raised concerns about traffic and pedestrian safety at the site. Malone said a traffic study done on behalf of WinCo Foods was insufficient and more needed to be done to protect shoppers entering and leaving the proposed store. On May 17, the Planning Commission held a special meeting and adopted the finding of facts presented by WinCo. That decision was appealed, which means it now comes before the City Council. If the City Council renders a decision Monday and that is appealed, it will go to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals.

Safe Streets Roseburg has not returned phone calls and emails seeking comment on its position. On May 3, the Roseburg Planning Commission approved the project, following several weeks of written exchanges between WinCo Foods and the group Safe Streets Roseburg, which has opposed the development.

WinCo also has six distribution centers, including one in Tri City that employs more than 50 people. Monday’s special City Council meeting is scheduled to be held via Zoom, beginning at 6 p.m. It will be streamed live on the city’s Facebook page. Two other stores opened in Montana in late February. That brings the total number of stores to 133 in 11 states, with more than 20,000 employees.

On Feb. 1, WinCo opened new stores in Bend, and in Wenatchee, Washington. The openings represented the 23rd WinCo Foods store in each state. WinCo, which stands for the words “Winning Company” combined, dates back to 1967 when two Boise businessmen founded a discount store called Waremart. The name of the company was changed to WinCo Foods in 1999. The employee-owned supermarket chain is known for its bulk items and low prices.
