Although the outside perimeter of the ShopKo building appears to be one large, muddy mess, the inside of the 26,000- square-feet building is shaping up to be a clean space for people to shop this summer. Jans Corporation’s Paul Coldman, the general contractor of the $3.7 million project, said about 75-percent of the building construction is complete and his team remains on schedule to be finished with the building by June 15. Coldman said he thought there would be a soft opening shortly afterward, but ShopKo officials did not return phone calls to confirm that fact.

Notes of laughter flutter from the 15 women in attendance.
