Two empty stores in Davenport will open again in the fall with a different retailer.
Theisen's Home, Farm and Auto announced Monday it bought the former Kmart and Hancock Fabrics buildings to open a new store. The family-owned business, based in Dubuque, has 20 locations in Iowa and two in Wisconsin. Its closest store is located in DeWitt, Iowa.
Co-owner Chris Theisen says the family has been trying to find a suitable location in Davenport.
