Shopko sells Rx files from 42 stores to Kroger

BY David Salazar

A new deal between Shopko and Kroger will see Kroger buying the files from 42 of Green Bay, Wis.-based Shopko’s stores. The stores — which only make up a portion of the retailer’s 227 pharmacy locations, but 25 of its 72 Wisconsin pharmacies — will see the pharmacies closed, with main stores and optical centers remaining open.

The companies said Kroger banners would service Shopko patients’ prescription needs. The locations include pharmacy counters in Idaho, Montana, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.

Shopko and Kroger did not disclose financial terms of the deal. Kroger CEO Randy McMullen told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that the purchase is part of the company’s efforts to increase its presence in Wisconsin. He noted that Shopko pharmacy associates would be interviewed to “hopefully continue their careers with us.
