Four mid-Michigan Kmart stores will close in mid-December

A total of four mid-Michigan Kmart stores will be closed by the end of the year.

Larry Costello, Public Relations Director for Sears and Kmart, commented to MLive-The Flint Journal, noting “After careful review, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to close Kmart stores in Belleville, Hastings, Menominee , Midland, Clio, Grayling, Oscoda and Marine City, Michigan. "

Liquidation sales are expected to begin in mid-September, with a plan to close stores in mid-December," Costello said, with customers urged to continue shopping on Karmt's website "for all their product needs."

After the closure of Vienna Township, no Kmart stores will exist in Genesee County.

Costello declined comment on the number of employees who will be affected by the closures.

The announcement marks the latest Kmart stores to be closed in the region ̵[ads1]1; including Burton, Flint, Grand Blanc, Fenton, and Flin t Township – since 2012.

Two businesses – Family Farm & Home, KFC restaurant and Dollar Tree – are now occupying parts of the former 106,000-square-foot Burton Kmart store and adjacent car park along North Belsay Road.

A U-Haul plant was approved in August 2018 inside the former Kmart store off Miller Road in Flint Township.

In Fenton, a TJ Maxx recently moved from Eastridge Commons Square near the intersection of Lapeer and Flint Center Roads to the former Kmart store in Silver Lake Village off Silver Parkway which closed in 2016.

Andrew Mastrangelo, Head of Media Relations for TJ Maxx, formerly said the new Fenton T.J. The Maxx store will employ approximately 65 full-time and part-time employees.

The 35 employees of Flint T.J. The Maxx store – including executives and affiliates – has all been offered the opportunity to work in the Fenton store, Mastrangelo said.

Petco, Five below and Michaels occupy the Fenton store room remodeled by Wixom-based K2 Retail Construction services.
