Bomgaars Buys 5 Shoppers Supply Stores In Iowa

September 20, 2012, 6:58 AM


Bomgaars has bought all five Shoppers Supply stores in Iowa.

The deal takes effect Oct. 1. Terms were not disclosed. The locations are in Fort Dodge, Webster City, Eagle Grove, Humboldt and Des Moines.

Sioux City-based Bomgaars sells home and farm merchandise and now will have 66 stores in Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota, Colorado and Wyoming.

Bomgaars senior vice president Dave Meyer says the five stores will keep the Shoppers Supply name through the holiday season.

Shoppers Supply President Jim Schmidt says Bomgaars will retain most of the store workers.

Schmidt told The Messenger in Fort Dodge that Shoppers Supply's corporate future is in Arizona, where it has a store in Apache Junction and an opportunity to expand.
