     The stores will be located in in Afton, Wyo.; St. Peter, Minn.; and Winneconne, Ellsworth and Tomahawk, Wis.
     The Hometown retail format offers retail health services along with an edited selection of apparel, home furnishings, toys, consumer electronics, seasonal items, everyday consumable items and lawn and garden.
