The Kmart in Southbury will soon close its doors as a part of Sears Holdings’ move to close 28 Kmarts nationwide.
This leaves only three Kmarts open in Connecticut, located in Milford, Vernon, and Watertown.
The closings will occur in mid-November, although liquidation sales will begin as early as August 31 at the affected locations, according to the company.
Kmart reports that the stores are closing as the company continues to update and transform their business model, physical appearance, and digital capabilities.
Employees of the closing stores will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at all other Kmart and Sears stores in the area.
