Keizerites might just be shopping at Waremart by Winco at the end of the month.

Keizertimes reached out to a spokesperson for the business last week and didn’t receive a reply, but a sign posted on the front of the store at 5450 River Road North suggests the grocer plans to open by the end of January.

That’s not the only indicator that things are moving ahead at full speed. On Dec. 29, the city issued Waremart’s occupancy permit suggesting that construction is complete. In addition, the Keizer City Council approved Waremart’s liquor license in a unanimous vote Tuesday, Dec. 2.
