New “Shopko Hometown” Store In Sheldon Holds Ribbon Cutting, Grand Opening

Sheldon, Iowa — The former Pamida store in Sheldon has re-opened as a “Shopko Hometown” store.

A ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony was held on Thursday (10/18) at the store’s location on Highway 18 in Sheldon.

City councilman Dave Popkes spoke on behalf of the City of Sheldon.

Executive Director of Sheldon Chamber and Development Mark Gaul gave the remarks from the Sheldon Chamber.

Skip Tanner presented a framed portion of the ribbon from the ribbon cutting and spoke on behalf of the Sheldon Ambassadors.

Cookies and refreshments were available throughout the day on Thursday, and the first 100 people got a special door prize says store manager Lance Hunter.

The switch-over from Pamida to Shopko Hometown began on September 6th. Various departments closed at different times to make the switchover and do some remodeling. Hunter says all the former Pamida workers are working for the new Shopko.
