Shopko to open store in Wisconsin

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Mass merchandiser Shopko will open a new Shopko Hometown store in the city of Seymour, Wis., the chain said in December.

The company said the new store would focus on retail health by offering pharmacy services and a full eye care center. Shopko had acquired the former Seymour Pharmacy and planned to run the store at its current location until it could construct a new store, but said it would retain the pharmacists and staff.

“They have an outstanding reputation for providing exceptional care to their patients,” Shopko EVP retail health services Mike Bettiga said. “We intend to continue to provide excellent care and service to the people of Seymour.”

Shopko said the new 36,000-sq.-ft. store would offer the same kind of merchandise as full-size Shopko stores, including consumables, home products, clothing and other merchandise.
