VIRGINIA, Minn. -- Three Kmart stores in northern Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan will close in mid-April, owner Sears Holdings announced Tuesday.
The Kmarts in Superior, Wis., Virginia, Minn., and Ironwood, Mich., have been slated for closure. In Superior, the news comes as the nearby Target store prepares to close its doors for good on Jan. 30.
The Superior closure — for the store located at 3015 Tower Ave. — will affect 42 employees, and the Virginia closure — for the store at Thunderbird Mall — will affect 48 employees. The closure of the Ironwood store will affect 47 employees.
The stores will begin liquidation sales Jan. 24, but remain open to the public until mid-April.
