Old Shopko warehouse will see new use, bring hundreds of new jobs

A company that uses plastic waste, recycled wood and scraps to create outdoor projects like decking, railing and trim, is opening a new warehouse in Boise that will create hundreds of jobs.

The AZEK Company is opening its newest location at 1001 E. Gowen Rd. The company has agreed to a long-term lease with LDK Ventures’ Boise Logistics Center.
