Kmart Officially Done In Peru

Posted by wlpo on June 4, 2012

After weeks of an “everything must go sale”, Peru’s Kmart is officially closed.

The store closed its doors yesterday after 40 years in Peru.  Over 60 workers were still clocking in at Kmart while the shelves grew barer by the day.

With Kmart closing, the area has lost well over 200 jobs just in the past week.  Printing company R.R. Donnelley in Mendota closed up shop last Monday.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
