Shopko is the latest retailer to announce a store closing in Lincoln.
The Green Bay, Wisconsin-based company Wednesday announced plans to close 39 stores across the country, including its location at 3400 N. 27th St. in Lincoln.
The other 38 stores closing are smaller-format Shopko Hometown stores, including locations in Kimball and Ord.
Liquidation sales are scheduled to start Friday, with the stores set to close at the end of February.
Shopko has closed a number of stores over the past few years, including several locations in Nebraska. It closed two Omaha-area locations in 2016 and another last year. The Shopko Hometown store in Crete closed at the end of June, and stores in Ogallala and Gordon are scheduled to close later this month.
"Despite all of the stores' efforts, as we reviewed the long-term outlook on profitability, sales trends, and potential growth, we came to the difficult decision that it was necessary to close these stores," said company spokeswoman Michelle Hansen.
The Lincoln Shopko closing announcement comes on the heels of news that Gap will close its only Lincoln store Jan. 28. Other large retailers who have closed stores in Lincoln this year include Toys 'R' Us and Younkers.
Lincoln has three other Shopko stores: at 66th and O streets, 27th Street and Nebraska 2, and 27th Street and Pine Lake Road. The company has been advertising a portion of the 27th and Pine Lake store for lease for more than a year.
