ST. PETER, Minn. (KEYC) - After being vacant for a few months, the old Shopko location in St. Peter will soon be filled with life again.
Hy-Vee is setting up shop in the building, located on Old Minnesota Avenue.
Hy-Vee first took over the Shopko pharmacy in St. Peter in January, a few weeks after Shopko filed for bankruptcy.
Shopko closed its St. Peter location this spring, five years after opening in the city.
Hy-Vee has already put up a few billboards in St. Peter to notify residents of their new store.
Construction will begin this summer with the store expected to open in early 2020.
Hy-Vee says the new store will be 36,000 square feet and offer full service grocery, plus floral, bakery and food services services.
