ST. CLOUD -- You now have another option of where you can buy your groceries in St. Cloud. Both St. Cloud Shopko locations have expanded to include a grocery department.

Store Manager of the west side Shopko, Tony Middlesworth says they offer staples such as milk and eggs but also freezer snacks.

"We've expanded over 80 feet to our grocery department, we're one of 17 stores that now have coolers and freezers. We have frozen items such as ice cream, sandwiches, pizza, things that we were never able to carry before."

With many grocery stores in the area, Middlesworth says customers will have more options and will be able to find what they need under one roof.

"I believe it's the one stop shop, we're a discount store, big box but we now have over 1500 new additional items, to help the customer shop and fill their basket, here in one location."

127 Shopko stores nationally have groceries and both St. Cloud locations have freezer sections in their grocery departments.
