Kmart Closing 18 More stores

Just read that Kmart will be closing 18 More stores . I think I saw like at least 5 in Penn . The store on Maui will be closing . So sad it will be a end to Kmart soon in like 2-5 years. Kmart and Sears will no longer exist.

Haha MFR, I have no idea, not many. They closed down in Tucson years ago.

I wonder if that will drive up the prices of HWs with the K, Key stickers still on them?

Wiki is only current up to Q1 2017, but looks like that after this Q2 closings it would still leave just under 500 store locations still open. More than I thought it would be.

Very sad.
Between Pennsylvania and Virginia that is almost half of them.
I've been to the Herndon Virginia one many times while on vacation, nice store.
Oddly enough we are going to that area again on vacation in a week. One less place to go in the future.

Yup, my store here in Herdon has already started the Store Closing campaign. Guess I'll be doing online order from now on.

It's just a hair over 600 now with the closing locations accounted for.

And there's at least 2 more PA locations likely on the chopping block that aren't on that list.

We still have four stores in North Dakota - Bismarck, Fargo, Grand Forks and Minot. None are anything to brag about...and the Sears stores are not a whole lot better. Matter of fact - Fargo lost their Sears store.
