Been hearing some rumblings today that the Big Bear Lake Kmart (7653) is going to be closing down starting February. Wondering if anyone has any inside info if there is any truth to this.

It's true.... I work there and am losing my job.
Big Bear Kmart will close in 2021Dec 08, 2020 5:34 AM
After months of speculation, Kmart made it official. The Big Bear Lake store will close at the end of February.
The city of Big Bear Lake and the Big Bear Grizzly were notified on Dec. 7 of the impending closure. A distress sale is set to begin Dec. 10 and customers may notice more merchandise in the store where shelves have remained empty since last Christmas.
Announced today(12/7/20)..... closing.... liquidation begins this week.
The store is really empty. Mostly clothes and shoes left. No household appliances, towels, sheets, etc. it seems like they keep moving whatever’s left forward. Shelves in the back are empty. Not much point to try and shop there, which explains why the parking lot is pretty much empty. It’s a real shame. Hope Walmart or Target moves in.
Eddie is shifting focus to sears. He is buying back Sears Hometown. Kmart will be an online only retailer soon. Traditional Sears stores will either close or dramatically lower footprints. Sears will soon only sell appliances and mattresses. It's a damn shame. Kmart had potential before it bought Sears.
Said it was a rumor, never said it is true.
I have seen zero evidence of this. Please don't post such things unless u have a link to back it up.
Didn't hear about it closing down but but I did see a part of the store completely cut off at the seasonal section . Looks very suspicious and the store does look bear in certain spots.
