I drove by the Kmart on the south side of Lebanon (near PA 72) today, and it actually looked somewhat busy.  I was very shocked, but there also is not a Target in the area that I know of, and the Wal-Mart there is on the east side.

The Waterford Kmart is closing I thought that ugly store would be the very last Kmart to close. Also RIP to Sears in Lansing, with two malls in the Lansing area I thought Sears at least did it right by locating about halfway in between the two malls.
Why do you care?  You want them all to close anyway!   :hmmm:

The Warren store is closing too (announced earlier) which leaves Marshall as the only Michigan Kmart.
Marshall will probably be on the next round of closures.

Just saw a closing sign on the one near me at the MacDade Mall in Holmes, PA yesterday.  I don't believe I've been at that one or any K-mart for that matter in over 2 years.

The Clifton Heights K-mart, the second closest to me, is also closing as well.

Seems to me they are trying to milk a dead cow. Close them all and be done.

It's a nationwide chain, which means it has multiple locations.

Starting not to feel like a nationwide chain with the number of closures though.

When's the next round of closings? Let's finish this beast off. No Sears or Kmart's within 100 miles of me.

Looks like the ones in the latest round of closings just started their clearance liquidations. The one in Billerica, MA just started yesterday.

I have to admit, I've been going to that store since I can remember. It used to be an anchor of a pretty small mall that actually was quite busy into the mid-90's. Now the old entrance to the mall still exists that just brings you into a store that will be gone in a couple of months, with the rest of the mall long since converted into stuff like a Big Lots and a Planet Fitness and a few smaller things. I went in tonight, and realized I will really miss it, despite my wishes that they just rip the band-aid off and be done with shutting down the whole company.
