JANESVILLE—The shiny metal sign that once read “Shopko” on the front of the defunct retailer’s former Janesville store along Humes Road has been gone since 2019, shortly after the retail chain went bankrupt.

Since then, the building has remained vacant, and the rusty residue the sign left behind has started to run down the structure’s tan façade, leaving behind a ghostly epitaph.
