Report: Shopko closing 4 stores in South Dakota

DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (KSFY) - Shopko has announced a wave of closures of its stores nationwide, including several in South Dakota.

SiouxFalls.Business reports Shopko stores in Dell Rapids, Wagner, Webster, and Redfield are set to close.

Ethan Faux lives in Dell Rapids and used to work at the store. He said he isn't surprised by the closure.

"I think it's just because we're too close to Sioux Falls, really, and there's a Lewis in town that everybody was already a part of before Shopko came here, and so nobody was really using the pharmacy, and just people were more willing to drive to Sioux Falls for better deals," he said.
