MISSOULA – Shopko announced it is closing its remaining 120 department stores, including Missoula and Kalispell in Western Montana.

Shopko will liquidate its assets and close all of its remaining locations by June, according to a document filed Monday in U.S. bankruptcy court.

According to a press release, the following Shopko stores in Montana will close:

  • Missoula
  • Kalispell
  • Billings
  • Helena
  • Sidney

The Green Bay, WI-based retailer filed for bankruptcy Jan. 16, 2019.  It started closing stores and pharmacies in Dec. 2018.
