Shopko Building Sale

After sitting vacant for nearly a year, the former Shopko building in Gothenburg has new owners. According to records filed with the Dawson County Register of Deeds office, Steve and Ligia Peterson have acquired the property through a transaction facilitated by the Gothenburg Improvement Company in late January.

The GIC is instrumental in creating economic development opportunities in Gothenburg, and Peterson told KRVN radio that “the opportunity came up to purchase the property, and we acted on it.”

The Peterson’s said details of the intended use of the building are still being worked out, and he did not wish to comment further on the purchase.
