This endeavor is an important part of our retail business going forward and we believe our e-commerce platform will enable us to better serve our customers as they have the option to visit our stores or shop online."

According to Jack Mullen, Senior Vice President Marketing, "The launch of Shopko.com was driven by customer input and our desire to serve her needs.
