All remaining Shopko retail stores, including the Sister Bay Hometown location, are closing by June 16. A liquidation sale is reportedly being planned for the next three months for the 120 stores affected by Monday’s decision. Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler says he was disappointed in the announcement but sees good news in the future for Sister Bay.
On Monday, Shopko filed in U.S. Bankruptcy court noting the closure of all the stores by June. Shopko had hoped to find a buyer at an auction on Tuesday but that was canceled with the announcement. In February, Shopko had announced plans to close 250 stores.
