Hy-Vee has acquired the business of six more Shopko pharmacies.

Those include St. Peter, Forest City, Iowa; Toledo, Iowa; Mt. Ayr, Iowa; Emmetsburg, Iowa; and West Point, Nebraska. Shopko patient files will remain with each Shopko location until a transition plan is executed.

The Shopko pharmacy will soon become a Hy-Vee Pharmacy that will operate in the existing Shopko building, despite the news that Shopko is closing these locations.

Hy-Vee says in addition to traditional pharmacy services, they feature free prescription delivery, automated refill ordering, immunization services, free blood pressure checks and private medication consultations. 

All impacted Shopko pharmacy patients will receive a letter from their new Hy-Vee Pharmacy with additional details, including prescription transfer dates.

In December, Hy-Vee acquired 22 Shopko pharmacies, including Mankato.
