Communities like Sister Bay and Kewaunee are now left with big storefronts after Shopko finished the last of its closings on Sunday. Only the optical side of the business will remain when the last racks are removed after Shopko sold off its pharmacy operations months ago. The city of Kewaunee and the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation has been working to find a new tenant for the former Shopko Hometown location since even before it closed in early May. Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Richard Baker says they are still trying to find the right fit.
Much like Sister Bay, Baker is happy Hometown Pharmacy will expand into the region with an opening date slated for some time in August.
