Spokane Valley-based Yoke’s Foods Inc. has started work on a $2.5 million renovation project at its Yoke’s Fresh Market grocery store in the North Foothills neighborhood, on Spokane’s North Side.
The project will include remodeling the interior of the supermarket, constructing a new exterior façade, and demolishing a portion of an attached retail building to make room for a new driveway connecting to Jackson Avenue, says Tony Hall, Yoke’s facilities manager.
Yost, Mooney & Pugh Contractors Inc., of Spokane, is the contractor on the project, and Nystrom+Olson Architecture, also of Spokane, designed it.
“It’s a complete inside-and-out renovation to bring the store up to the current corporate design,” Hall says, adding that some departments will be reconfigured and relocated within the store.
The 63,000-square-foot supermarket building was constructed in 1988.
The store will remain open during the project, which is expected to be completed in late fall, Hall says.
Yoke’s Foods, an employee-owned company, operates a total of 12 Yoke’s Fresh Market stores in Eastern Washington and North Idaho, including six in the Spokane area.
