Shopko Expands Grocery Depts. in 127 Stores

Shopko recently expanded the grocery departments of 127 stores – 17 of which include cooler and freezer sections – to offer a larger selection of food and beverage items. The expansion, which has infused more than 1,500 new products in the Green Bay, Wis.-based retailer’s stores, is part of a larger effort focused on better meeting the needs of the local community and solidifying its commitment to being a one-stop shop.

“In our effort to deliver the ultimate convenience to our loyal customers, Shopko continues to add to its growing and diverse line of products across all of its stores,” said Greg Doran, SVP, Shopko Stores. “As a proud member of the communities we are privileged to serve, we are continually striving to find ways to make our customers’ lives easier, and this grocery expansion is one more means for us to achieve that objective.”

The new products offered in Shopko’s expanded market department include juice, coffee, snacks, cookies, cereal and breakfast foods, baking products, canned goods, condiments and meal solutions. Cooler and freezer items include eggs, milk, pizza and ice cream.

“Our customers asked that we expand our grocery section and we listened,” Doran added. “We expect there to be great demand for the grocery items and are already looking at how we can increase our offerings moving forward.”
