C&K Market, the parent company of both Ray's Food Place and Shop Smart, is closing 16 stores, including several here in Southern Oregon and Northern California. While that means a longer trip for some to get to their nearest grocery store... it also means approximately 500 people will lose their jobs. NBC5's Craig Smullin reports.
