The Country Walk Shops in Sister Bay received a boost last week when it was announced a Hometown Pharmacy would be moving in this spring. The news comes just a couple weeks after Shopko announced it was closing its pharmacy as it reorganizes in bankruptcy. Blue Heron Glass Etching owner Mary Blichmann and Massage of Sister Bay owner Betts Williams sold approximately half of their location to Jaco Management to help facilitate the move. With the Piggly Wiggly undergoing its renovations, Blichmann is excited for what the additional foot traffic could mean for other businesses in the Country Walk Shops.
Without a pharmacy in the village, Sister Bay residents were going to have to rely on deliveries to the local clinic or the mail in order to get their medications.
