(LOOGOOTEE) - Loogootee's Pamida store will soon be known to local shoppers as Shopko.
Pamida and Shopko Stores earlier announced that the two companies would be merging.
Combined, the annual revenue of the two companies equals $3 billion dollars with nearly 350 stores in 22 states.
Pamida president and CEO John Harlow says this is an exciting move for Pamida as the Shopko Hometown format will offer customers an even better retail experience and a new and differentiated product offering that is not currently available in the smaller communities his company serves.
The remodeling process for the Loogootee store is expected take from five to six weeks to complete. Shopko will retain all of Pamida's current employees.
