  WORLAND – Despite a court filing on Monday that claims Shopko is scheduled to file for bankruptcy on Jan. 15, and a previously disclosed 39 stores closing across the nation, the Worland branch of the retailer remains open, with prescription services being filled.

  “We still have not received any notice that we are closing, and we’re still filling prescriptions,” sad Worland Shopko pharmacist David Ahlstrom on Wednesday.

  As listed in December by the corporation, the Greybull Shopko is closing, along with branches in Colorado and South Dakota, in the northern Rockies region.

  According to a Wisconsin court filing on Monday, Lawyers for McKesson Corp. claim that Shopko has not paid for more than $67 million in pharmaceuticals, and has indicted to McKesson that they will seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

  Shopko was founded in 1962 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
