Shopko was founded in 1962 and is based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The department store became one of the biggest chains in the state and even expanded into other states. Everything went well for Shopko for years until it announced that it would close up to 70 percent of its stores.
The company then changed its mind and decided to close down all of its stores as it didn’t have a chance to survive the pandemic. Now, there are no more Shopko stores around as they were all closed down, and the company didn’t see a point in saving them.
