  • A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge has signed off on C&K Market's reorganization plan, allowing the parent company of Ray's Food Place grocery stores to emerge from Chapter 11 protection.
    Judge Frank R. Alley III signed an order Monday confirming the C&K Market plan. The company is based in Brookings.
    C&K said it's preparing to launch new initiatives, including an "Eat Fresh Eat Local" program providing produce from nearby family farms at 11 Ray's Food Place stores in Oregon.
    "These farmers use sustainable methods, and we're proud to offer our customers more than 100 varieties of local fruits and vegetables," Karl Wissmann, C&K Market president, said in a statement.
    Customers may also sign up for a Pick 5 Community Supported Agriculture program.
    Registered customers can visit a participating store and pick five fruits and vegetables Saturdays between 7 a.m. and noon. The program begins July 5 and runs through Sept. 6.
    Wissmann said other initiatives that will be rolled out soon include a specialty candy program featuring nostalgic, sugar-free and gourmet selections; a new natural pork program; additional hot food items and salad bars; and an expanded wine selection in many stores.
    "We're responding to what our customers want," Wissmann said.
