After announcing the closing of 39 stores across the country, including six in Kansas in December, Shopko has decided to close all of their stores in Kansas including their location in Beloit. Beloit Shopko manager, Charles Lawrence, confirmed the news late last week. The Beloit Shopko has 15 employees andis one of the 250 Shopko stores closing across the country, including newly added Kansas stores in Abilene, Norton, Seneca, Scott City, and Burlington. Shopko retailers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection recently. In 2015, Shopko Hometown stores replaced former Alco stores after Alco closed all of their stores, including 23 in Kansas. Beloit City Manager Jason Rabe says it is disappointing to see a retail store like Shopko close it’s doors.
Shopko will be having a sale to move the remaining merchandise it has in the store.
