Shopko Corporate announced late Thursday they’ll keep the Fairmont location open.

In a release the company says after careful consideration and conversations with community stakeholders, Shopko has made the decision to keep its Fairmont store open.

“Store closings are never an easy decision, but following our announcement we received significant feedback from the community on the value of this Shopko store,” Russ Steinhorst, Shopko CEO, said. “Based on this information, and receiving financial support from our landlord we have reevaluated this store and are happy to announce we will keep this store open.”

The company says they are extremely grateful for the community feedback and support.  The Fairmont store has been open since 1985 and employs 41 local residents.

The company announced their filing for voluntary Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Wednesday along with the closure of 38 additional stores.
