VALE – A Boise grocery firm confirmed Friday that it bought Logan’s Market in Vale for an unspecified price and will take over immediately.

Rich Tate, director of operations for Intermountain Food Stores, said the deal was initially supposed to happen last spring but the Covid pandemic delayed the final sale.

“We had heard Logan was interested in retiring and we are looking at growth so it just worked out,” said Tate.

Logan Hamilton, the owner of Logan’s, wasn’t available for comment Friday morning.

Intermountain Food Stores owns M&W Markets in 13 locations across southern Idaho and eastern Oregon, including a store in Nyssa.

Tate said the deal includes purchasing Logan’s . . .
