From Shopko to Storage
The 66,749 square foot building has remained vacant since early 2019 when the previous occupant Shopko filed for bankruptcy and closed all locations across the country. The 500 North U.S. Highway 281 location has been purchased by Amerco Real Estate Co. It is a commercial real estate company based out of Phoenix, Arizona that specializes in real estate and developmental services with U-Haul. Now that the old Shopko location is freed up, the real estate company has requested a building and zoning change with a special exception for the open storage of rental trucks, trailers, and other vehicles associated with moving and storage. An opening date has yet to be confirmed for the new business. // — Karlie Spiry
