  1. When will these closings take effect?

    1. January 12 and yes, this sadly does include the last supercenter.

  2. Does this include the Kmart Supercenter in Niles,Oh?

  3. Seen a news release from the Youngstown area..the last surviving SuperCenter in Niles is closing,posting gave a March-April time frame for closing...

  4. There's rumors a few others that weren't announced would also close. In addition Vornado bought out Kmart's Astor Place (NY) lease:

    1. So I saw. That store will no doubt likely be closing soon.
      As for the others, it isn't shocking news.

  5. Sad, sad, sad...

    Besides the Super K, I visited the Indianapolis-Thompson Rd location over the summer, and I visited St. Albans in 2016.

    1. Sad indeed! Been to St. Albans last year and of course I also made it to the last Super Kmart too.

  6. The really sad part about this whole mess is Lampert will make money off of this....

    1. Yep, makes you wonder how legal this whole charade is.
