Shopko was founded by a pharmacist, James Ruben in 1962. When Ruben opened Shopko’s first store in Green Bay, he envisioned a company focused on three main themes: quality, convenience and value. He saw the opportunity to combine health care services with a large discount store, and Shopko became one of the first mass retailers to feature pharmacies and eye care centers in its stores. Shopko is owned by an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners (www.suncappart.com). For more information about Shopko, Shopko Hometown or Shopko Express Rx, visit our Web site at www.shopko.com.
