Citing a lack of profitability, coupled with its proximity to another store, Shopko Manager of Public Relations Michelle Hansen last week confirmed to the Tribune that the Tioga Shopko will close this June.
“Closing stores is, unfortunately, part of retail,” Hansen said.
Shopko opened in March 2015. The Tioga location was one of 20 openings held on the same day, after the Alco chain went bankrupt.
The building located at 6527 ND 40 near the south edge of Tioga was built by Alco and opened in November 2012, during the height of the Bakken oil boom.
