ST. GEORGE – The last Kmart in Utah, located in St. George, will close its doors before the end of the year.
Earlier this month, Transform Holdco, the privately held company that acquired the assets of Sears Holdings Corporation, this year announced the closure of five Kmart locations and a number of Sears stores nationwide.
Now Transform Holdco's public relations director Larry Costello has confirmed with St. George News that the latest Kmart in Utah, located on St. Blaise Street in St. George, will close one of more than 1
"After careful review, we made the difficult but necessary decision to close the Kmart store in St. George Utah," Costello said.
The liquidation sale is expected to begin in mid-September and the store is due to close by mid-December. Customers will still be able to shop online.
Costello declined to comment on any steps taken by employees of the Kmart store in St. George, but in a previous statement about the previous closure, the company confirmed that all eligible employees would be able to receive compensation for the same number of weeks as employees who were fired before the bankruptcy of the company in October 2018.
