The drip-drip-drip saga of Shopko is turning into a flood.
Now, the Nampa store is slated to close.
The retailer announced today it will enter Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It also announced a long list of 38 additional store closings – which for the first time notes the Nampa store on Caldwell Blvd. The last day for the store is April 8th.
