♦ Salisbury’s Kmart store at 815 E. Innes Street will close in early April 2018 according to reports in the Washington Post.  This is yet another hammer blow to Salisbury’s declining economic fortunes and its weakening tax base. It comes as no surprise with the onslaught of online shopping and retail leakage to surrounding counties.

According to the Washington Post: “Salisbury’s Kmart Store is among 64 that the retail chain will close this spring, the company announced Thursday.  The store at 815 E. Innes St., is one of five in North Carolina that will be closed by early April.

Sears Holding, which owns both Sears and Kmart chains, was one of two major retailers to announce additional store closings Thursday as they grapple with declining sales and customers who are increasingly shopping online.”

No announcements yet about going out of business sales.

Best of luck Kmart employees in finding jobs and collecting benefits!
