Thriftway is closing

You have just three weeks of some probably good sales shopping before Uwajimaya takes over the Thriftway Grocery Store located in the Renton Village Shopping Center. Starting on Sunday, the store hours will be 7 am until 8 pm and all stock is 20% off.
The new owners have a very solid history of providing excellent Asian specialty items as well regular supermarket fare, along with an emphasis on high quality produce, meats and fresh seafood. However, many will miss this store and the staff are having a hard time coming to grips with the sudden lack of employment. Seems you need to speak more than one language to meet the new hiring requirements at the store-to-be. Thriftway carried my favorite soap - guess it's time to stock up.

I will miss Thriftway...they have a great selection of wines and bottled beers. I do like Uwajimaya though...Hopefully they will have a small lunch counter like the one downtown. Hopefully the people who work at Thriftway now can find employment.

OMG! I love that store, but I don't do all my shopping there. Just cheeses and treats like that. Sad!
