(KNSI)- Runnings is opening its 17th store in Minnesota in the fall and will hold a hiring event in the spring.
Runnings officials will employ around 60 people when it opens.
The company is moving into the former 92,000 square foot Shopko store off of Highway 10 in East St. Cloud.
Runnings has a long-standing history of purchasing vacant retail buildings and renovating them to serve the needs of their home communities.
The building, a 92,000 square foot complex located at 501 U.S. Highway 10 SE, has been vacant since Shopko closed its doors early last year.
Runnings was founded in 1947 and has grown from its early days as an automotive supply and farm store to a broad general merchandise retailer selling an extensive selection of sporting goods, clothing, pet supplies, tools, farm supplies, footwear, lawn and garden supplies, and outdoor equipment.
The privately-owned, family-run retailer also sells hunting, fishing, and archery equipment and accessories, as well as firearms.
The company announced a search would begin immediately to hire a Store, Assistant, and Warehouse Receiving Manager to run the St. Cloud based store.
Job fairs scheduled for spring will focus on hiring department managers, sales associates, and cashiers.
