FAIRMONT, Minn. (KEYC) - Retail chain Bomgaars has acquired the former Shopko building in Fairmont.

Shopko announced the closure of all of its stores back in March.

The company says it plans to hire local workers, and is holding a job fair September 4th and 5th at the Holiday Inn in Fairmont.

A grand opening celebration is expected to be announced later this Fall.
