“We are thrilled to welcome the team at Chuck’s to Roth’s and to the Pattison Food Group,” said Darrell Jones, president of Pattison Food Group, in the statement. “This is a great addition to the group that share our commitment to excellent quality and customer service.”
The stores were owned by Premier Management Service Corp., which is co-owned by Bart Colson. Colson is a partner at the Vancouver-based Hawthorn Retirement Group, owning numerous senior care facilities around the U.S., including Springwood Landing Gracious Retirement Living in Vancouver.
The stores are known for being a premier grocer in the county and one of very few that were locally owned. Unlike other retailers, Chuck’s was closed on Saturdays and did not sell pork, shellfish, wine or spirits.
Pattison announced late Monday that, beginning April 2, both Chuck’s locations will be open on Saturdays. They will also sell pork products, as well as wine and spirits, pending regulatory approval.
The Columbian reported both Chuck’s Produce and Street Market locations were for sale in December, listed on the market for $7.5 million for the Mill Plain location and $17 million for the Salmon Creek location.
