Construction of a new 35,000-square foot Shopko Hometown store located at 825 W. Fulton St. is complete, and the store opened to the public Monday, Sept. 24. A grand opening and ribbon cutting event is set for 8:45 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, and the entire community is invited to join Shopko’s 35 employees for the event.
The grand opening event will feature a $2,500 check presentation to Waupaca High School from The Shopko Hometown Foundation prior to the ribbon cutting.
In addition, the first 100 customers in line will receive a free $10 Shopko gift card. A number of prizes will also be given out.
Customers will also be encouraged to sign up for Shopko’s My Extra Savings rewards program. Those who use their My Extra Savings 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 offers national brands and private label brands of apparel, home furnishings, toys, consumer electronics, seasonal items and lawn and garden products.
