According to an article in My Edmonds News, the former Edmonds Top Food at 219th St SW and SR 99, will reopen next week as WinCo.

We’ve been busy for months on this, and now that we’re almost there the excitement is beginning to really build,” said store manager Dave Kamrath. 
WinCo's bulk food department stocks a wide variety of items including candy, cereals, coffee and more. 
Kamrath, formerly assistant store manager in Beaverton, Ore., is one of the few employees who have come in from other WinCo locations. “We have close to 150 people working here,” he said, “but only about 15 have transferred in. The rest are local.” 
According to Kamrath there are still a few positions to fill, and that applications can be submitted online.

The store opens for shoppers at 9am on Thursday, October 22.

This is some info on WinCo from Wikipedia

WinCo Foods is based in Boise, Idaho. It was founded in 1967 and most of the company ownership is held by current and former employees through an employee stock ownership plan. WinCo currently operates five distribution centers in Woodburn, Oregon; Myrtle Creek, Oregon; Boise, Idaho; Phoenix, Arizona; and Modesto, California, and has a total of just over 15,000 employees company-wide.[1]

It reduces operation expenses by purchasing directly from manufacturers and farmers; accepting cash and debit cards, but not credit cards; having basic, no-frills stores; and not providing bagging service.[9]
