Kmart in Abingdon's Towne Centre closing in January
Kmart in Abingdon has joined the growing list of closures of the department store chain which has shuttered hundreds of locations in the past two years, its parent company announced Thursday.
The store located at 300 Towne Centre Drive was included among 45 Kmart stores and 18 Sears stores that are scheduled to close their doors in late January 2018, the report from Sears Holdings said.
"It's important to note that these stores will remain open to serve members during the holiday season. Eligible associates impacted by these store closures will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Kmart or Sears stores," the statement said.
Liquidation sales will begin at the Abingdon location as early as November 9, the report said.
