Duckwall-ALCO Stores, Inc. today announced it will close 44 Duckwall stores, including 20 in Kansas, and redeploy the capital into higher return ALCO stores.

The Company, which currently operates 214 broad line ALCO stores in 23 states, intends to change its corporate name to ALCO Stores, Inc., to reflect its new strategic focus. The name change will likely take place in fiscal 2012.

Rich Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "After careful analysis, we have concluded that the small, limited-selection Duckwall stores no longer meet the needs of most shoppers."

The 44 Duckwall stores have a total of 267 full- and part-time associates. Forty-three of the stores will close permanently and one Duckwall store in Hettinger, ND, will reopen as an
ALCO store.
