More Signs are up that the old Shopko North Store in Rochester, Minnesota

Looks like more stores are moving to the old Shopko North building in Rochester, Minnesota.  Yes...I said MORE!  Back in November, I got a little excited because I saw a few signs added to the outside of the building.  If you missed that bit of news, I've got a recap below or you can check out the original story here.  Well, I should have just waited to tell you that piece of info because the right side of the building just got another sign added to the outside.  This time, it is a business in downtown Rochester that has decided to relocate its store.

List of stores and restaurants that are now located in the old Shopko North building in Rochester

Rochester has a bunch of buildings that could be repurposed and I'm really excited to see the changes that have happened at the old Shopko North store.  Change is hard for a lot of us and when we hear new things are happening it is hard to envision what that might eventually look like, but I have 2 thumbs up to the new look and revamp of this building!

If you haven't been in the restaurant or ventured to this part of Rochester lately, here's what you will now see in the old Shopko North building, including the brand new place that put its rather large sign up near the movie theatre:

The right side, which used to be Women's Apparel and is closest to the newly re-opened CMX Chateau Theater, was sitting empty for a bit but now has several new businesses opening including the following:

  • ETS Performance - You probably remember the news that a few NFL players were opening up a sports facility in town over on Bandel Road in NW Rochester.  It's been open for a bit and is know as Rochester's premier sports facility.
  • Active PT and Sports Physical Therapy has "Coming Soon!!!" on their website and will be having their grand opening on December 10th.  You can see that and learn more here.
  • AND NOW...(do the little drum roll thing on your lap)...the latest news...

As you can see from the sign on the building, Fit My Feet, which is currently located in Downtown Rochester, will be opening a store in the old Shopko North building too.  Their sign is up and I reached out to them to get a few more details.

Update on Opening Date - The original plan was to close the downtown Rochester location and be all moved in the first part of January.  Sounds like the plan is going a little slower than anticipated and the opening date is still TBD.  As it gets closer and I know when it is officially open, I'll share the info on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.

FYI...Pretty sure something else is moving in that building too!

Based on some other info that I heard, I am pretty sure one more place will be added to this store too.  Download our app and we will share those details as soon as we get some more details.
