Treating employees right AND making money…

This is a great story about WinCo, a grocery store chain in the west that seems to consistently beat WalMart/Sam’s club on prices AND treat their employees well.

They give benefits and pensions to workers who work 24 hours per week.  They keep their costs low by having no frills stores, having their customers bag their own groceries and buying their products directly from producers as often as possible.

They anticipate growth in the west — and they seem to be a model of how to run a business that both treats their employees well and make money.
