The other is the former ShopKo department store at 2602 ShopKo Drive on the city’s North Side. ShopKo currently leases the building and has announced plans to close the store at the end of August. The store’s lease expires in 2026 and ShopKo may have to sublet the almost 120,000-square-foot building, the city document shows.
