The Kingman Kmart store is closing. The store located at 3340 East Andy Devine Avenue is on a list of properties in multiple states that are being closed by the Sears Holdings Corp.
Chairman and CEO Eddie Lampert issued notice Friday, July 7 that the company is closing an “additional eight Sears and 35 Kmart unprofitable stores”. Kmarts in Las Vegas and Phoenix are included on the list of stores where imminent liquidation sales will precede early October closures.
“We have fought long and hard for many years to return unprofitable stores to a competitive position and to preserve jobs and, as a result, we had to absorb corresponsding losses in the process”, Lampert’s notice said. “Eligible associates impacted by these store closures will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at are Kmart or Sears stores.”
