Shopko Will Close Remaining Stores By Mid-June
Earlier in the year Shopko announced a list of store closures, including some stores in Montana. The good news for us was Missoula wasn't on that list.
Then, a couple weeks ago the news was that Payless ShoeSource was going out of business. Of course, there's a Payless inside our Missoula Shopko.
Now it looks like the knockout blow is coming for our local store. Shopko announced they would close their remaining 120 stores by mid-June - a move that will affect about 5,000 employees.
The company filed for bankruptcy in January. They were unable to find a buyer for the business and will reportedly start the 10-12 week closing process this week.
Montana stores that are still open include Kalispell, Billings, Helena and more.
