A simple beginning started a revolution.

Shopko was founded by James Ruben in Chicago, Illinois, in 1961. Yet, in 1962, the first Shopko store opened in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where we’re still headquartered.

Shopko Stores Operating Co., LLC currently operates over 370 retail stores in 26 states throughout the Central, Western and Pacific Northwest regions of the U.S. We provide quality name-brand merchandise, great values, pharmacy and optical services in various retail formats, including 126 Shopko stores; 5 Shopko Express stores with 5 Shopko Pharmacy locations; and 242 Shopko Hometown stores.

We’re especially proud of the Shopko Foundation, which provides grants and scholarship opportunities to enhance the lives of our neighbors in every community we serve.
