ShopKo Special Meeting to Proceed

Green Bay, Wis., ShopKo Stores, which agreed in April to be acquired by a private equity firm, said today that a special shareholder meeting to approve the proposed deal will go ahead as scheduled Sept. 14, after a court denied a request by dissident shareholders seeking to block the deal.

The Circuit Court for Brown County, Wis., denied a motion by plaintiffs to prevent the meeting from happening, ShopKo said.
