I shop winco very often, it and costco are two staples of my household.
Funny thing when I moved from So Ca to Oregon, I was surprised that the local Win-co was an exact copy of the one I had at home so much so I just went
through my normal routine and everything was exactly where it would of been in So Ca, gotta love branding.

First I want to say I love this thread. It's positive.
The issues addressed in this thread are the same issues addressed in many other threads. But the approach is different. It's not simply showing bad
corporations and feeling angry about it, It's showing something better, that there is a way to make everyone happy.
One of the Wincos here in Portland used to be a cub foods back in the late 90s (maybe even more recently, I'm not exactly sure). I remember there used
to be protesters out front of the cub foods on a constant basis, and I believe it was supposed to be something having to do with the employees not
being apart of some union or something.
I looked up cub foods and evidently they have some connection with Winco. While I'm sure a lot has changed since the late 90s, I still find it odd
that Winco/Cub would go from being the "enemy" to being a shining example of a decent company.
Has their business changed dramatically or have the rest of the corporations become so evil that winco/cub is now good by comparison? It just made me
I was reading around online and some guy said when Cub abandoned the NW some former employees got together and bought the locations, forming winco.
That would sure explain the difference in the company, but the other information I've seen shows a more concrete connection between the two
