1/10/2019 2:31:00 PM Windom Shopko manager: 'It's business as usual at our store'
As shoppers shuffled through the aisles of Shopko in Windom, Manager Keith Ramm agreed that it has been a rather distracting day at the store, what with the rumors that Shopko has fallen on hard times.
"For us, it is business as usual at this time," Ramm said. "My boss is telling us that we are waiting until next week to find out what will happen."
Ramm said rumors about possible closing started last month, when the Shopko pharmacy moved to the Windom HyVee store. Of course there is also the December report that Shopko would close 39 stores, nationwide.
Ramm said the Windom store has been successful.
"Productivity-wise, we are doing very well," Ramm said. "We are operating top notch. We have a soild team here in Windom."
Ramm added that a lot of the reports on Facebook and elsewhere are simply rumors.
"No one legally knows until it all comes out," Ramm said. "All I can say is we are not missing a beat. We are still taking customers. We're still kicking away. Our hours are the same, everything is the same."
