Shopko Hometown Grand Opening Friday, Sept. 9

By Staff | Sep 7, 2016

Shopko Hometown’s grand opening and ribbon cutting will take place on Friday, Sept. 9 at 7:45 a.m., and the entire community is invited to join the Shopko team and local leaders for the event.

The grand opening event will be highlighted by a $2,500 check presentation to Emmetsburg High School by the Shopko Foundation.

“The ribbon cutting was changed to an earlier time — 7:45 a.m. — due to new store hours,” said Emmetsburg store manager Matt Buss. “We are inviting everyone in the community to attend.”

In addition to the check presentation, there will be a number of special promotional occasions during the opening. The first 100 customers in line will receive a free $10 Shopko gift card. A number of prizes will also be given out through “register to win” events.

Customers will also be encouraged to sign up for Shopko’s loyalty program to receive exclusive mailers, $10 off on their birthday and special email announcements and offers. Every customer who uses their loyalty member card on the day of the grand opening will be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 shopping spree. Refreshments will be served inside the store.

“Shopko Hometown is thrilled to be a part the Emmetsburg community,” said Peter McMahon, Shopko CEO. “Our brand is all about providing customers with ‘The stuff that counts’ – friendly service, brand name merchandise at a fair price and a convenient shopping experience.”

Shopko Hometown is located at 3402 Main Street in Emmetsburg.
