All Shopko stores to close

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN – Shopko announced on Monday that all of its remaining stores will close.

“Despite the Company’s best efforts, it was unable to find a buyer for its go-forward business as a going concern,” the company said in a press release. “As a result, Shopko will commence an orderly wind-down of its retail operations beginning this week. Further, the Company is evaluating strategic options for its optical business.”

The closure of the Webster City Shopko Hometown was announced in December.

Shopko also has stores in Humboldt and Clarion.

According to the press release, the Gordon Brothers will oversee a liquidation process that is anticipated to conclude in about 12 weeks.
