Shopko Announces Six More Store Closures

Shopko has announced the closure of six more stores in
Wisconsin. The retailer announced late last year it is closing 39 stores in 19
states by the end of February. Reports say Shopko plans to close stores in
Appleton, Grafton, La Crosse, Menasha, Seymour and Sussex in addition to the
store in Mauston, which was the first announced closure in the state. The announcements
come as Shopko intends to seek bankruptcy protection from creditors next week.
