Sears Holdings Corporation has announced more closures of stores in Devils Lake and in Bismarck. "You heard a lot of rumors ahead of time about them". However, she said Helena's unemployment rate is now very low, so Kmart employees may have an easier time finding another job.
"Seeing this place close is like seeing a part of my childhood go away too because when I was little we used to shop in Kmart, so it's just sad", she said.
Liquidation sales will begin as early as January 12 at the closing stores.
The Kmart store in Great Falls closed several months ago.
"Sears Holdings continues its strategic assessment of the productivity of our Kmart and Sears store base and will continue to "right size" our store footprint in number and size", the company said in a press release.
