Shopko sells more pharmacy business to Hy-Vee

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Shopko sold off more of its pharmacy business as it reportedly struggles financially.

Friday, Hy-Vee Inc., based in Iowa, announced it's acquired 22 Shopko pharmacies in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

Only one pharmacy in Wisconsin is on that list, in Madison.

Earlier this week we reported Kroger purchased Shopko pharmacies at 42 locations, including 25 in Wisconsin. And last week, Shopko announced plans to liquidate 39 stores in 19 states by the end of February.

In Green Bay and the Fox Valley, the pharmacy files will be transferred to Kroger-owned Pick 'n Save locations in January, but customers can begin getting their prescriptions filled at Pick 'n Save pharmacies now.
