WinCo Foods, new Town Pump under construction on Bozeman’s north side

A long-anticipated grocery store and a new Town Pump are under construction on neighboring parcels on Bozeman’s north side.


Construction of WinCo Foods is underway on Max Avenue near Staples, just off of North 19th Avenue. The employee-owned grocery store, based in Boise, Idaho, first tried for a Bozeman location in April 2016 but withdrew those plans later that year over city design requirements.


The chain resubmitted designs in October 2017, but was met with a fight from the United Food and Commercial Workers Local-4 Union, which alleged the store would cause increased traffic and risk the jobs of people working at other grocery stores in Bozeman.
