ALCO Stores, Inc., has announced it will close its ALCO store in Dodge City.
In making the announcement, Dan Roth, vice president for store operations, said, “The decision to close the store in Dodge City was a difficult one. We have valued the opportunity to be a part of this community, but unfortunately the store’s performance does not meet our financial requirements. The economy has clearly had an impact on store sales, and we’ve made the very difficult decision to close.”
Roth said employees of the Dodge City store will have the opportunity to be considered for positions at other ALCO stores.
Beginning today, the store will mark down prices on many items prior to its closing date, which is anticipated April 29.
Roth added, “This is never an easy decision to make, and we know it will have an impact on the Dodge City community. We wish to express our thanks to the many friends that we have served over the past several years and also thank the employees who have served our company faithfully during that time.”
