Local News

A Shopko in Siouxland will be closing in the coming months. 

Shopko announced that their location in Cherokee, Iowa and 38 others throughout the nation will begin liquidation on December 7 and close at the end of February. 

Including the Cherokee location which opened in October 2015, there are three in the state of Iowa closing. In Nebraska there are three, and there are four closing in South Dakota. 

A spokesperson for Shopko said that employees will be able to transfer to open positions at remaining locations or they will be provided severance benefits. 

As part of their statement, Shopko said the following: 

Shopko deeply values its employees and the communities it serves. It is never an easy decision to close a location and Shopko thanks its employees for all their support and hard work as well as its loyal customers. 

Despite all of the stores’ efforts, as we reviewed the long-term outlook on profitability, sales trends, and potential growth we came to the difficult decision that it was necessary to close these stores.
