The Shopko in Chamberlain will not be closing.
Earlier this month the company said that it would close the store.
Now Shopko says that after consideration and conversations with Chamberlain, South Dakota community stakeholders, it has decided to keep the store open.
“Store closings are never an easy decision, but following our announcement we received significant feedback from the community on the value of this Shopko store,” Russ Steinhorst, Shopko CEO, said in a news release. “Based on this information, and receiving financial support from our landlord we have reevaluated this store and are happy to announce we will keep this store open.”
The Chamberlain store has been open since 2016 and employs 16 local people.
Earlier this week Shopko filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and announced it would be closing 38 more stores, including the two Sioux Falls locations.
