Marion Sears; West Frankfort, Mount Vernon Kmart stores to close

Further shedding unprofitable stores, Sears said that liquidation sales will start later this month, with closures expected in March and April.

The Kmart in Hazle Township, one of three anchors at the Laurel Mall, is among a list of 64 Kmart stores nationwide that will be shuttered by the end of April, including 10 in the commonwealth.

Other Kmart stores set to close in our region include West Frankfort and Mt. Vernon, Illinois.

Sears wouldn't say how many of its employees would be impacted by the closings but did say the majority of the jobs are part-time positions, and eligible associates will receive severance.

Sears Hldgs Corp (NASDAQ:SHLD) down -0.53% to close at the price of $3.76. Enid's store is the only Kmart in Oklahoma included on the latest list.

The company announced the closures on Thursday.

Sears Holdings closed the Sears store and auto center in Chico in 2017, but the Redding Sears and auto center are still open. It's unclear if and when that store will open.

The closest Kmart stores to Enid are located in Clinton, Shawnee and Wichita, Kan., according to Kmart's website.
