According to the Skagit Valley Herald, Winco has canceled plans to build a store in Mount Vernon. Here is a (link) to the story. (thanks to a reader for the head’s up).
The company went through the planning process, getting approval by the Mount Vernon City Council. In a press release, the company told the paper “company resources would be better utilized in other locations.”
So far there has been no announcement about Winco trying again to build in Bellingham. It had originally been interested in a spot near the Bakerview Fred Meyer, but the plan was rejected by City Council.
