Shopko to Liquidate Assets, Close All Stores
ASHWAUBENON, WIS. — Shopko, a Wisconsin-based retailer, has announced the commencement of its liquidation sale. The company will close all of its stores. In January, Shopko filed for bankruptcy protection, but was unable to secure a buyer. Gordon Brothers will oversee the liquidation process, which is expected to conclude 10 to 12 weeks from now. The vast majority of Shopko’s stores are located in the Midwest, but the company also operates a number of locations in the western portion of the country. Shopko is evaluating a strategy for its optical business. The first Shopko store opened in Green Bay in 1962.
