Six More Kmart Stores Closing In Illinois

Kmart is closing another 64 stores in the United States as the retailer continues to struggle with declining sales. The stores will begin liquidation sales on Sept. 22 and will close down by mid–December.

Kmarts in Chicago’s Gage Park neighborhood, New Lenox, Tinley Park, Joliet, Springfield and Macomb, along with a Merrillville, Indiana, store, are part of the latest batch of closings from Hoffman Estates-based Sears.

We have been strategically and aggressively evaluating our store space and productivity, and will be accelerating the closing of unprofitable stores as we have previously announced,” said Sears spokesman Howard Riefs.

Kmart said it’s experimenting with a new store format in Des Plaines designed to give the Kmart brand a boost and appeal to millennials.

Kmart held a grand reopening for the Des Plaines store with an “enhanced shopping experience and a reinvigorated store environment” in August, including an improved customer service center, personal shopping concierge service, grocery section, beauty bar and new promotions.

Sears operated 883 Kmart stores and 709 Sears stores as of July 30.
