A customer walks into the Shopko on Mineral Point Road near West Towne Mall on Wednesday shortly after the company announced it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Shopko said Wednesday it plans to close 38 stores on top of others announced late last year but has not identified the locations.

In February, Shopko announced more closings after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month. As part of their restricting, the Wisconsin-based retailer plans to close over 200 stores nationwide and relocate 20 optical centers to freestanding locations.

“This decision is a difficult, but necessary one,” said Russ Steinhorst, Chief Executive Officer. “In a challenging retail environment, we have had to make some very tough choices, but we are confident that by operating a smaller and more focused store footprint, we will be able to build a stronger Shopko that will better serve our customers, vendors, employees and other stakeholders through this process.”

Additional Shopko stores plan to remain open after securing $480 million in financing from a group of lenders led by Wells Fargo Bank. Shopko has more than 360 stores in 26 states throughout the Central, Western and Pacific Northwest regions.
