TOLEDO - The conversion from the old Pamida to Shopko Hometown store in Toledo is complete as the store opened earlier this month.
The store features home furnishings, groceries, apparel, electronics and a wide variety of other items.
"There has been a great deal of excitement in the community through the conversion process and we're excited to finally be bringing the Shopko Hometown experience to Toledo," said Mike Bettiga, Shopko interim CEO

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the new Shopko Hometown store at 8:45 a.m. Thursday. The store is the former Pamida location in Toledo.
The store will share that excitement at a special ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening event at 8:45 a.m. Thursday. The grand opening event will feature donations to local schools and the first 100 customers in line will receive a $10 Shopko gift card. The store will also have prize giveaways.
The store is located at 1006 South County Road, just north of Highway 30 as it enters Toledo.
The store hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m Sunday. The pharmacy hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and closed Sunday.
"Our pharmacy team and store hours remain the same as they were at Pamida and we are dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of our customers with prompt, friendly, professional service," said Mike Bachelder, pharmacy manager.
The conversion from Pamida to Shopko came after the two companies merged earlier this year. Shopko, which is based in Green Bay, Wisc., is investing $80 million into 170 Pamida stores.
