West Frankfort K-Mart closing

Sears in Marion, Mt. Vernon K-Mart as well

By Steve Dunford 

WEST FRANKFORT –  In a move that does not come as a big surprise to me or several that has shopped in the stores over the last several months, the West Frankfort K-Mart will be closing its doors.

“We will continue to close some unprofitable stores as we transform our business model so that our physical store footprint and our digital capabilities match the needs and preferences of our members,” the company said in a statement.

There is not a full press release issued from Sears holding company.  Outside of the immediate Southern Illinois Region, The K-Mart in Paducah is closing as well.

Store management declined for comment, as they have been instructed to by higher level management.
