Shopko has announced that it will open a new Shopko Hometown store located at 3402 Main Street in Emmetsburg. Shopko Hometown provides local residents a convenient new community-focused shopping experience that features essential name-brand items. The store will be open to customers beginning Thursday, Aug. 28. A special grand opening celebration event, highlighted by a $2,500 check presentation to Emmetsburg High School by the Shopko Foundation, will take place at 8:45 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 9. All residents are invited to join the Shopko team and community leaders for the event. “At Shopko Hometown, we understand that we’re simply part of the larger community,” Peter McMahon, Shopko CEO. “That’s why we support local organizations, such as schools and 501(c)(3) organizations that are vital to the well-being and future growth of the community.” As part of its commitment to convenience, as well as the Emmetsburg community, Shopko has partnered with Mansmith Pharmacy, a well-respected pharmacy serving local residents for 34 years which will now become Shopko Pharmacy. The entire Mansmith staff will be joining Shopko when the pharmacy moves into the New Shopko Hometown location in conjunction with the store opening on August 29. Customers can have prescriptions filled by the people they’ve come to trust, while taking advantage of the one-stop shopping experience that Shopko Hometown stores offer. Additionally, customers can take advantage of Shopko’s free mobile pharmacy app - allowing shoppers to manage and refill prescriptions anytime from their mobile phones. “Shopko is a leader in healthcare and pharmacy services. We are happy to join Shopko and look forward to continuing to provide excellent service to our customers including our prescription delivery service in Emmetsburg and nearby communities,” said, Mark Anliker R.Ph. “We are committed to integrating our loyal customers into Shopko Pharmacy so that the transition is seamless.” Shopko Hometown combines Shopko’s strong reputation for customer service with a broad and dynamic offering of national brands and private label brands at a great value. Product offerings include clothing, home furnishings, toys, consumer electronics, seasonal items and lawn and garden products – all in attractive, well laid out, easy-to-shop store format. “The excitement surrounding our grand opening isn’t just about the products we sell, it’s about making life easier for the customers we are privileged to serve,” said McMahon. “It’s about the stuff that counts – the essentials that help people get ready for work or school or to enjoy the weekend with family and friends. With our best-in-class pharmacy services, focus on exceptional customer service and strong commitment to supporting the local community, we are confident that Shopko Hometown will be well received by customers in the Emmetsburg area.” The store will be open daily: 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Pharmacy hours are: Monday through Friday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pharmacy customers with questions are encouraged to contact Mansmith Pharmacy by calling 712-852-2727.
