Shopko's filing for bankruptcy protection is raising concerns about the company's ability to help local charities. The company has sponsored a and hosted a car show at its Sister Bay store. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski credits Shopko with making the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's "Toys for Tots" campaign, which he's involved with, a success.
Shopko plans to close 105 stores nationwide. The Shopko Hometown stores in Sister Bay and Kewaunee remain open and operate as usual during the bankruptcy process.
