One of Spokane's Shopko department store locations is going out of business. Listed as one of 39 total Shopko's to close nationwide, the store at 4515 S. Regal will officially close their doors in February.
Liquidation sales will begin today ( Dec. 7th ) and run through the holiday season. The South Hill store is the only store in Spokane and all of Washington state set to close. Shopko intends to continue operating their North Spokane, Spokane Valley and Coeur d' Alene stores.
The national closures are a result of the Wisconsin based retailers plan to scale back it's brick and mortar retail presence in hopes of restructuring the company which is said to be possibly preparing for bankruptcy. The majority of the 39 stores set to close on the new list are small town geared Shopko Hometown formatted stores.
In addition to the Spokane Shopko closure, a store in Bonners Ferry,ID at 6355 Main St will also close their doors.
