List of stores and restaurants that are now located in the old Shopko North building in Rochester

Rochester has a bunch of buildings that could be repurposed and I'm really excited to see the changes that have happened at the old Shopko North store.  Change is hard for a lot of us and when we hear new things are happening it is hard to envision what that might eventually look like, but I have 2 thumbs up to the new look and revamp of this building!
If you haven't been in the restaurant or ventured to this part of Rochester lately, here's what you will now see in the old Shopko North building, including the brand new place that put its rather large sign up near the movie theatre:

I did some digging to learn more about Chip Shots and according to one of the owners' Facebook pages, Ryan Utterback, Chip Shops will feature 15,000 square feet of fun.  They will have the following:

  • 6 sport simulators with games featuring golf, baseball, hockey, football, frisbee golf, shooting, racing etc.
  • 3 pickleball courts
  • An area large enough for giant bean bag tourneys
  • 25 TVs and a projector
  • full bar and kitchen ready to serve up the best grub and tastiest cocktails around!
  • They will also be featuring live music and DJ's
