Kewaunee pondering options for Shopko store site

Shopko's decision to close the Hometown location in Kewaunee has city leaders looking to come up with options for the property.  Mayor Sandi Christman says Kewaunee is looking to form several task forces related to the closure.  They would focus on helping Shopko Hometown employees transition to new jobs and obtaining ownership of the property for reuse.


Mayor Christman says there is some interest in filling one of the gaps left by the pending Shopko Hometown store closing.


The Shopko Hometown store in Kewaunee is set to close in early May.  Mayor Christman says the goals of the task forces and the city's marketing analysis will be topics of discussion when the city council meets on Monday.
