(KNSI) - Wisconsin based Shopko says they're going to be closing several stores, including two in Minnesota.
Company officials say the stores in Paynesville and Mahnomen will shutter at the end of February as a way to increase profitability following an examination of sales trends and growth potential.
Liquidation sales at the doomed stores will start Friday.
Shopko East and Shopko West in St. Cloud are not scheduled to close.
Shopko says the closures will affect up to 25 employees at both stores.
