 2/5/19 - Union Gap Shopko will remain open; pharmacy to close [Yakima Herald-Republic, Wash.]

Feb. 05UNION GAP, Wash. The pharmacy at the Union Gap Shopko store will be closing at 4 p.m. Tuesday, according to a sign inside the store. But the store itself will remain open.

The sign is posted in front of the pharmacy area in the store at 2530 Rudkin Road. It states that all records from the Shopko pharmacy will be transferred to the Rite Aid store nearby at 2519 Main St.

Green Bay, Wis.-based Shopko has already started liquidating its Yakima store at 5801 Summitview Ave. The Yakima closure, which is expected to happen in April, is one of more than 105 the retailer plans nationwide after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Jan. 16.

Shopko spokeswoman Michelle Hansen said the Union Gap closure is only for the pharmacy and that the store will remain open. The retailer also has a Shopko Hometown store in Prosser.
