Pharmacy closing?

I am retired from the company and living in Laramie, WY. Our kmart is still open. Today, at the Safeway store, there was a big sign that said "welcome kmart pharmacy customers". Are all pharmacies closing, or just ours? Nothing on line that I can... read more

I miss the original KMart in Garden City, Mi

Was always a nice place to go It’s a shame the have closed the store that started it all!! They closed all the KMarts within a 20 mike radius and it’s a shame! The buildings just sit empty. Wonder who pays for the parking lot to be lit at night? Nice... read more

Sears Will Survive A Bit Longer; Kmart Will Not

I am going to be a doomsayer as I have been on this site but I do not care. I'm sure that Sears itself will not die next year (though won't be surprised if it does) and perhaps they can hang on for a bit longer. But don't think for a second that... read more

Kmart Kauai Closing

Another Kmart Closing-Not Announced

The Kmart in my city, St. Clair Shores, Michigan, was spun off to be a Seritage property some time ago. Our city council just shared plans for Kroger to demolish it and build on the site within the coming year. This is one of the top performing... read more

Sacrificing Kmart for Sears

Found this on Sears board, thought it was spot on: I agree that SHC will sacrifice Kmart to secure a short lived future for Sears, the writing has been written on the wall for years, with several remodels and improvements in sears stores and Kmart... read more

Alasdair James as a CEO, FAILED

Why would you keep this man as CEO of Kmart and Sears when everything was falling apart.. It seems to me that he REALLY doesn't give a damn about the company, especially with the losses. He REALLY doesn't know what to do, this is NOT a leader, this... read more

Told not to reorder layaway boxes?

Apparently there was a district wide email saying not to reorder the cardboard boxes we use for repacks / layaway. Anyone else get an email like this? There are about 6 stores in my district so I find it hard to believe we'd all be going under.


Closing stores..Sales bad but hearing some kmarts are getting remodels.Hba and soft home depts. Kind of odd....

SM Layoffs coming!

Herd a rumor that Store Managers that don't carry safety blades are in store for lay offs! May be good news for store managers that struggle to walk around the sales floor.

Kmart started the one touch test.

FYI, it's a disaster. We had to put everything out and send pictures showing the backroom was empty. It doesn't matter if the counter is full put it anywhere. We had paper towels and toilet paper all over the store! Comforters on the top shelves in... read more

Blowout Sales Starting July 9

So the blowout sales are July 9 at most stores. Does anyone have any details? I have checked the Kmart Retail Services portal and OWB, and it's strangely silent about the sale. I guess information is only available via email, which I do not have... read more

Kmart laying off assistant managers

Do you have more information about layoffs of assistant managers at Kmart for 2017. The way I see things, this position carries quite a bot of work - not sure how they can do without us.

Chairman's Focus Store

Any idea what a chairman's focus store is? I used to work for the company a couple years ago (about 7 years), and start working for Kmart as a second-job. My store is classified as a 'chariman's focus store...' I know from my prior stint with Kmart... read more

Truth or Fiction

Mentioned today on a business insider blog..Target is showing interest in buying out the Kmart side of sears holdings..They are opening smaller stores like mini targets, one in California. Makes sense but is this another rumour....


Is it true that when pharmacies close the store will soon too. Two area Kmart pharmacies are closing. They say the stores aren't doing good in sales so is that the procedure...Close pharmacy then store later?
