After more than a century, King’s Variety Stores will close down the last remaining locations – 19 in all.  

The last Treasure Valley location – in Weiser – closed in 2015. King’s used to dot the landscape all across Idaho, including on Franklin Rd. and State St. in Boise, and in almost ever small and medium town, including Emmett, Mountain Home, Nampa and Payette. 

The closest stores – soon to close – are in Burns, OR and Buhl. 

According to KIFI, King’s cited retail trends and online shopping for its demise.
