Shopko originally announced they were shutting down 39 stores but Boise was never on the list.  Well, they're on the list now.  The Shopko in West Boise has announced they will be shutting their doors indefinitely sometime in March.  Until then there will be a liquidation sale which, I believe, starts immediately.  They have a sign in the front area with details.

Shopko still has two stores.  One on Broadway in Boise and the other is in Nampa.  Reports from Boise Dev say that both of those stores are expected to stay open.  The Shopko on Fairview near Eagle Road shut down last year.

Shopko has been trying unsuccessfully to find a buyer but may end up in bankruptcy soon because nobody has stepped forward with interest.  They have 360 stores nationwide with a lot more closures expected.
