OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — About 300 jobs will be eliminated in the Omaha area when a distribution warehouse that served Shopko stores closes.

The Omaha World-Herald reported the closure of the distribution center on Monday.

The distribution center, run by Spectrum America Supply Chain Solutions, closed as a result of Shopko’s bankruptcy.

Spectrum America says the exact timing of the closure hasn’t been determined yet. The company will also close a distribution center in Boise, Idaho.

Andrew Rainbolt with Sarpy County’s Economic Development Corporation says he’s hopeful the people who lose their jobs will be able to find new positions quickly.
