The store is expected to open in January in the building previously occupied by Alco.
Shopko Hometown combines Shopko’s strong reputation for customer service with a broad and dynamic offering of national brands and private label brands at a great value.
Product offerings include clothing, home furnishings, toys, consumer electronics, seasonal items and lawn and garden products – all in an attractive, well laid out, easy-to-shop store format.
“We’re excited to bring Shopko Hometown to Blanding,” said Peter McMahon, Shopko CEO. “The Shopko Hometown store format, featuring our unique merchandising strategy and improved store design, is an ideal fit for the location with its exceptional service and community-minded approach.
“We understand that consumers in smaller towns are looking for value and convenience without having to travel outside the community. Customers of our Hometown stores tell us they appreciate the vastly improved shopping experience and access to a broad, differentiated selection of merchandise, including products and brands previously not available in their community.”
This new store will be part of the over 200 Shopko Hometown stores, making Shopko one of the nation’s largest retailers in smaller communities.
The grand opening is planned for February 2016.
Shopko opened a store in Moab in the Spring of 2015, soon after the closure of the Alco store there. They have been looking carefully at the Blanding site for several months.
