Take another look at the sentence:

Because Nigel had __________ to the supermarket with this week's grocery money, Shirley expected him to return with bread, milk, and other essentials. Boy, was she angry when he came home with fifty dollars worth of losing lottery tickets!

The sentence requires the past participle of go, an irregular verb. Gone is the past participle.

Verb Simple Present Simple Past Past Participle
go go(es) went gone

Went, the form you chose, is simple past; you cannot use the simple past with an auxiliary verb like had. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
