Streator Kmart Closing After Holiday Shopping Season

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2012

A few short months after the Kmart in Peru shut its doors for good, another Kmart store is closing.

Store officials told employees of the Streator Kmart yesterday that the store will close in late January.  A company spokesman says the 45 workers will get severance pay and have the chance to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores.  The spokesman says “these decisions are never easy, because Kmart appreciates being a member of the community”.  “However we made a business decision to not renew the lease at the Streator location based on its performance”.

The Streator Kmart opened in 1986.  Liquidation sales start this weekend.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
