I used to work for one in Oregon that closed within the last year. I loved the work and most the people I worked with. The pay did s— though and I found out later with a few years experience and 2 raises I was making less than the new supervisors (one of my wages was for a supervisor, one for a specialist). I loved being able to manage myself and work my day around what I felt would be a more effective use of my time but, not everyone has that kind of drive. Many of us senior employees would complain about the lack of help, or worse having to fix their mistakes because some would literally dump carts full of go backs on shelves and NOTHING was every done about it. I hate that I lost the job I loved but, I can understand why they went down for sure.

It is so very sad to see this happening. I remember growing up with K mart. I had worked for K mart from 1979 to 1990. I had advanced myself from Christmas help in the toy department to an assistant store manager. It was, at that time a good company to work for. Toward my last few years with them the company started to get c-appy mostly, I think, because of all the Walmart's opening. Upper management got flakey and nasty and nobody wanted to work for them. Same with Sears. I remember as a little kid back in the 50's and 60's going shopping at Sears with my parents. Kenmore and Craftsman were the items to get. There are no more Sears or K marts in my area now. All my former and current appliances I bought from Sears. Now I would have to order online. I miss the old days.

Post ID: @1Yftt+10Nv2HCD

The company in Valparaiso In also had their HR person fire people before they closed—- bad practice!!! Then managers from the store hired their family members!!! All the managers sat in their break room for hours at a time—— they should have closed!!! The managers there were lazy and took advantage of us young workers!!! Don’t feel bad for KMart they never gave employee’s raises, either!!!

They closed in Valparaiso Indiana and our numbers were up and increased.
How could the owner just give up like that!!!! Very upsetting how they handled employees.

I have been following Sears Hometown Stores as I worked there briefly (till this year). I noticed that if there is a Sears or K-Mart within 30 miles of a Sears Hometown Store, corporate is closing them down. However, the Sears Hometown Stores are closing as well. Five have closed this year in Florida. (Clermont, Homasassa, Palm Coast, New Symrna, forget the 5th store. Georgia is down to 15 and Tn is down to 3. In short, customers are abandoning Sears altogether.

Eddie just hit the nails in the coffin, I’m sorry but you can’t blame a whole lot on him - he got a great real estate deal out of it and that’s it. We knew in 1999 we were in trouble, but the board chose to put their heads in the sand. Kmart bought companies like sports authority and others instead of investing in our supply chain or updating the stores. There was no hope in my opinion by bankruptcy. We should have closed half the chain immediately following bankruptcy and rebranded and invested in stores. Even still I’m not sure we had a shot. This is quite possibly the slowest liquidation in history - so sad to see.

I worked for Sears/Kmart as a maintenance tech. I had 10 stores that i serviced. I was fired a week before Thanksgiving last year when they shuttered the maintenance department. I am loving watching this company burn to the ground! Burn baby burn!

it was never about a supply line chain, it is about selling real estate. not about retail and selling product. Corporate wants to make a buck over the selling of real estate.

Barberton, OH to close Mid-December, 2019, according to Akron Beacon Journal:
https://www.ohio.com/news/20190830/barberton-kmart-store-to-close-in-december

This is a frustrating, confusing one, because it's all that small community has without driving out to the heavy-traffic areas of Fairlawn/Montrose. Sounds like Major Judge is optimistic that "something will go in there."

My store is in Lewiston Idaho. We thought we were safe along with Kalispell, MT and Twin Falls ID. All 3 of these stores make a profit. Guess we were wrong. I hope Eddie Lampert loses everything he has, The demise of Kmart is partially his fault when he bought Sears. He could have made Kmart better with that kind of money instead of buying Sears. I feel for all of the Kmart family out there losing their jobs.

@10Nv2HCD-2lne You already answered your own question. More likely they'll be shut down after the holidays and probably will have little to no stock on shelves.

RIP Kmart in Idaho. Now the only northwest Kmart locations will by in The Dales, OR and Burlington, WA. How can the supply chain support such random locations 300 miles apart

Is there a source for this? Some of these closures have been confirmed by local news outlets, which say that the stores will close before the end of 2019, not in 2020.
