After many years of operation in the 40,000 sq. ft. Yankton store at 2300 Broadway Avenue, Bomgaars is moving across the street to their new 92,000 sq. ft. building at 2210 Broadway.
Doug Nissen is the store manager, with approximately 30 employees from the local area rounding out the staff. More positions for the larger store will gradually be added. A Grand Re-Opening Celebration is scheduled for April 14th and 15th. Registrations will be collected for big prizes, including two $250 shopping sprees and a $500 Grand Prize shopping spree. Free hot dogs and pop will be served from 11 AM - 1 PM each day. Store hours for the Grand Re-Opening will correspond to the normal hours of operation: 8-8 Monday-Friday, 8-6 Saturday, and 10-6 on Sunday.
