02/07/2019- The Marinette store is among 139 more Shopko and Shopko Hometown locations now slated to close this year. The company released the updated list of stores shutting down yesterday, bringing the total number of planned or completed closures nationwide to nearly 250 since Shopko announced last month it had filed for bankruptcy. Representatives of the Ashwaubenon-based retailer say, “Through our conversations with the potential buyers, it has become clear that it is in our best interest to operate with a significantly smaller store footprint.” The Marinette Shopko is set to close May 12th.
