In an annual budget request presentation to the Stevens County Commissioners on Aug. 20, Stevens County Economic Improvement Commission executive director Cheryl Kuhn gave the board a brief update on the former Shopko building.

Kuhn said she learned on Aug. 19 that a potential buyer and the building owner were not in agreement on how to handle an issue.

A prior interested buyer had backed out of a possible purchase, Kuhn said at the meeting.

Shopko closed on June 23 in a corporate-wide closure of all stores in the U.S.
