When do the closing stores get their vacation time paid? I thought it was at the end when you are terminated?

Kmart Hollywood Florida Closing? Safe?

Is the Kmart in Hollywood Florida saved from closing? They have added some new merchandise. There are no Halloween or Christmas items yet. Does that mean anything.

4th Home and Life

What ever happened to that leaked Home and Life store near Boston that was posted a while ago? The link was taken down, and the phone number is just a dead SHC number

Two Things I Heard About Kmart....

Wondering if anyone can confirm or deny this. First is what I hear is that the rest of the "top" Kmarts are going to be converted into smaller Sears stores instead. Second, I heard that the Guam store being bought out by the Aussies was a false... —  read more

December

No go forward plan. It's over for the company. The rumor mill is going today and word is it's winding down fast. This will be coming faster than you think.

Most disgraceful going out of business sale ever!

Eddie ought to be ashamed of the way he has conducted the closing down of Kmart. Suppliers, associates, and customers deserved much better. If you can't make the stores look decent then you have no business being open to the public and exposing... —  read more

To all HA associates

You know how they make sure you can't make jack on commission unless you sell 10 grand in protection plans a month ...so you get paid mainly on the store contribution which you get 9% of plus 1% of the sale ...well Eddie includes the delivery cost... —  read more

Can't sell protections plans during liquidation?

Why would they stop the sale of protection plans during liquidation if Sears was still an up and running company they go through the manufacturer the first year anyway so why would they stop the sell of protection plans?

The liquidator is in for a nasty surprise at our store

We probably have a semi truck trailer and a half of junk. Literally. Our store is huge. Our warehouse alone is almost as big as a smaller Sears store and there are lots of huge rooms in our warehouse packed with anything you could imagine. There are... —  read more

Kmart stores with cafes?

Are there any Kmart stores left (either just announced for closure or "go forward") with an operational K Cafe or Little Caesars? I haven't seen one in years, but I think they might still exist somewhere.

Kmart could have been saved in the early 2000s

When Kmart came out of bankruptcy the first time, they could have become a success. They had profits, a customer base, and the cash and financial resources to build new stores. Eddie is either a failed retailer or a cheat. Either he deliberately... —  read more

Pretty obvious this was gonna happen

What did Eddie expect? Put no money in stores for decades and then wonder why they fell behind? I guess all those other retailers across the entire world wouldn't know as much as Eddie. What do they know, doing silly things like investing in their... —  read more

the reason i stopped shopping at Sears

The reason I stopped, I felt bad for the cashier. She made me feel bad too because her stats would be negatively affected by me not wanting to give my data in exchange for being a "member". This happened about 3 times in a row. I finally said to... —  read more

Was anyone naive enough to think Sears would survive?

I think the answer is that we all knew that this is over. Yet we chose to stay. I mean, not many of us started looking for a new job aggressively after sears went private. What did we think that a miracle was going to happen?

Just one new store!

Perhaps Kmart could have done well if for all these closings they had opened just one new store in each area with the closings. It could have been a modern retail building in the current shopping areas that would replace 3 or 4 old stores that were... —  read more
