TOMAHAWK - Only one built-from-scratch Shopko Hometown general-merchandise store exists in the entire state.

Tomahawk could soon have the second location.

City leaders are considering a proposal for the new store in Tomahawk's north side.

The household basics shop is a scaled-down version of a full Shopko store.

"I would say it's favorable. It's probably going to be a good thing for the community as a whole. But you can't commit city resources by the tax base and added cash flow," says Tomahawk Mayor Bob Lee.

The site, near North 4th Street and County Highway A, is where the company wants to build.

Most current Shopko Hometown stores in the area, like the one in Eagle River, are converted Pamida stores.

The only other original Shopko Hometown is in Stanley.
