Shopko has announced that the construction of a brand new 36,000-square foot Shopko Hometown store located at 301 South Mantorville Avenue in Kasson is complete and opened to the public on November 10. A grand opening and ribbon cutting event will take place Friday, November 14 at 8:45 a.m., and the entire community is invited to join the Shopko team and community leaders for the event.
The grand opening event will be highlighted by a $2,500 check presentation to Kasson-Mantorville Schools followed by a $1,000 check presentation to Semcac Community Action Agency from the Shopko Hometown Foundation prior to the ribbon cutting.
“At Shopko Hometown, we want to make each of our store communities a better place to live by supporting schools and 501c3 organizations,” said Peter McMahon, Shopko CEO. “It is crucial that organizations receive assistance to support the well-being of its Shopko community.”
