Shopko closing


March 21, 2019

The Shopko Hometown store in Moose Lake will be closing, along with Shopko stores in other communities that had remained open after the corporation filed for bankruptcy on Jan. 15 this year.

“I just heard about it on a conference call this morning,” said David Loose, the Moose Lake store manager in a telephone interview on Monday afternoon. “It was a very short call. We will get more information later in the week.”

Loose said that the Shopko store will stay open until mid-June and then be closed.

“That’s all that I know about it right now,” he concluded. “I sent an email to the district manager to send me the talking points but I won’t see them until later in the week.”

The Moose Lake store employs 18 full- and part-time employees.
