C&K Market announces more layoffs

From C&K Market Inc.: 
 
Brookings, Ore., Jan. 7, 2014 – About half of C&K Market Inc.’s corporate staff members in Brookings and 
Medford are being laid off today, as part of C&K Market Inc.’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which was filed Nov. 19 
in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon, Eugene Case No. 13-64561-fra11. 
 
With fewer stores, C&K did not need as many people in its corporate offices. Positions were cut in all 
departments with a focus on streamlining operations to provide essential support to stores, as well as 
corporate continuity. 
 
“Entering Chapter 11 was a difficult decision for our family,” said Doug Nidiffer, chairman of the board. “These 
layoffs are particularly difficult, as many of these employees have worked for our company for many years. 
We appreciate their dedication and hard work and are saddened that we have to lay them off. We are making 
good progress and will emerge from bankruptcy this year as a stronger company. ” 
 
Lay off dates will vary depending upon the position. C&K’s human resources department will assist laid off 
employees in their job searches, including connecting them with state workforce agencies. 
 
By the end of the week, liquidation of merchandise will be completed in 15 stores slated for sale or closure. 
They operate under the banner of Ray’s, Shop Smart and LoBucks. 
 
No further reductions in the C&K workforce are planned.
