WinCo to hire 160 employees for first Billings store

January 29, 2019

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Officials say WinCo Foods is set to hire about 160 employees for its first store in Billings.

The Billings Gazette reports company spokesman Noah Fleisher says the supermarket is set to open in early March in a lot where a Kmart stood for 40 years.

The Kmart building was demolished in early 2018 and WinCo built its new store there that spring. Most exterior work on the building was done over the summer and fall, and crews have been inside all winter finishing the store’s interior.

WinCo Foods has 113 stores across the Northwest, Utah, Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. Its store in Helena is set to open sometime next month. Outside of Montana, the closest WinCo is in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
