Pamida starts storewide discounts as it prepares for Shopko conversion
Shopko announced today that store-wide savings will begin next week at the Manistique, Pamida store as it prepares to begin its conversion to Shopko Hometown. Beginning Monday, April 15, customers can find savings of up to 30 percent off all items in many departments, including apparel, shoes, sporting goods, toys, bed& bath, furniture, electronics and many more.
“This liquidation sale is the first step in the conversion process from Pamida to Shopko Hometown and this means great deals for our customers as we look to clear out the existing merchandise to make way for Shopko Hometown’s enhanced merchandising mix,” said Paul Jones, Shopko President, Chairman and CEO. “We are eager to be one step closer to bringing the Shopko Hometown experience to Manistique. The Shopko Hometown format has already been overwhelmingly embraced by customers in seven markets where we have already converted stores.”
As with all sales, the selection will be best early on so shoppers are encouraged to take advantage of the deals early. The store’s pharmacy will remain open and will be accepting new patients throughout the entire conversion process.
“We want customers to be assured that the Pamida Pharmacy will remain open and ready to serve customers throughout the entire store liquidation sale and conversion process,” said Patrick Caramella, RPh, Pharmacy Manager. “In addition, our pharmacy staff will remain the same now and after conversion to Shopko Hometown. Our shared commitment is to provide patients with the same great service they are used to. We look forward to continuing to serve the pharmacy and healthcare needs of Manistique and the surrounding area for years to come.”
Shopko will invest approximately
$80 million into Pamida store conversions which occur in phases through the end of the year. Once the liquidation sale is complete, the store conversion will take approximately 5-6weeks from start to finish and will include new interior and exterior signage, updated and supplemented fixtures, improved store design and layout, as well as an expanded merchandise mix.
