Print Article

BELOIT - The pharmacies in the ShopKo stores in Beloit and Janesville will close as part of a deal ShopKo has made with Kroger.

ShopKo has entered into an agreement to sell 42 of its 227 pharmacy locations in the United States to the Kroger company. ShopKo's main stores and optical departments at these locations will remain operating, according to a news release from ShopKo's headquarters in Green Bay. The sale includes 27 of ShopKo's 72 pharmacy locations in Wisconsin.

Michelle Hansen, a public relations official from ShopKo headquarters, said pharmacy files in Beloit are being transferred to CVS pharmacy.

For the customers affected by the pharmacy locations closing in Wisconsin, Kroger is offering its pharmacy services at Pick 'n Save, Copps, and Metro Market stores operated by Kroger's Roundy's Division. The remaining ShopKo pharmacy location closures that impact customers in Utah, Nebraska, Idaho, Washington and Montana will be serviced through Kroger banners.

The other ShopKo pharmacies to close in Wisconsin include three pharmacies in Appleton, three locations in Green Bay, as well as locations in Fond du Lac, Grafton, Kenosha, Kimberly, Manitowoc, Marshfield, Menasha, Neenah, Oshkosh, Plover, Racine, Rothschild, Sheboygan, Stevens Point, Sussex, Watertown, Wausau, West Bend and Wisconsin Rapids.

Earlier this month, ShopKo announced it would close 39 of its stores in 19 states, with the only Wisconsin store targeted for closure being in Mauston. ShopKo, founded in 1962, operates 370 stores in 26 states. The store closures are expected to be complete in February.
