As early as next week, Shopko could file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. 

With Sears announcing earlier this year they were liquidating, the Green Bay, Wis.- based department store company could be soon following.

Basically, it boils down to this: Shopko got the drugs, but they couldn't pay for the drugs. They missed a scheduled payment in December, and now the dealer doesn't want to deal to Shopko. Now they're down $67 million.

Drugs are expensive.

The company is expected to file for bankruptcy on Jan. 15, according to the Green Bay Press Gazette.
