Stanley Shopko Hometown to remain open for now thanks to petition

STANLEY, N.D. - The Shopko Hometown store in Stanley, N.D., announced they will remain open for the foreseeable future.

The petition that circulated on during the time the Shopko was said to be closing had more signatures than half of this town's population.

It's a store residents say is vital to the livelihood of people living there.

If this store were to close, the closest place people could go to get similar goods would be in New Town or Minot.

Still, Shopko could be in the midst of applying for chapter eleven bankruptcy.

Whether that will affect the operations of this Shopko Hometown, only time will tell. Their doors will still remain open for now.

We'll have more coming up on the evening report.
