ST. PETER — Although Shopko announced recently it will be closing the St. Peter store, Hy-Vee, which purchased several pharmacies from Shopko, said it will move into the pharmacy space inside the St. Peter store.
Hy-Vee bought several pharmacies from Shopko stores that are closing and said it will operate them in the existing Shopko buildings. The Shokpkos are to close in May.
The pharmacies will open on Monday.
In St. James, which has a Shopko that will close, the Lewis Drug Depot opened Saturday and has taken over Shopko prescriptions there.
