It will still be a while before the former Shopko retail space is bustling with activity again. The Village of Sister Bay, the Door County Economic Development Corporation, and the building’s owner are still working diligently to fill the space after Shopko stores across the region went dark in late June. Sister Bay Village President Dave Lienau says it has worked hard to be a place where people want to work, live, and play.
Even though it does not sound like it will be in the former Shopko space, a national retailer does hope to move into Sister Bay in the coming months. Tuesday’s Sister Bay Plan Commission meeting agenda featured a presentation by developers hoping to build a Dollar General in the village.
