One type of deal that we don’t particularly celebrate is one involving a business going out of sale. Being a small business ourselves, we understand the pain that goes with shutting the doors and closing up shop. That’s not to even mention the lost jobs that result for employees, so we aren’t breaking out the champagne and toasting the upcoming closings for two local Kmart stores.
With that said, we are committed to letting our Cheapsters know of opportunities to save money (especially in an economy in which businesses can and do fail). It’s with a heavy heart that we point you in the direction of these two stores so you can take advantage of liquidation sales. The closing Kmart stores are located at 2715 Madison Avenue on the south side and at 7425 E. Washington Street.
The liquidation sales are underway as of Sunday, September 28, but you have some time to go shopping before the doors close for good. We don’t have specific dates yet, but Kmart expects to shut the stores down in early December. It has been a rough year for Kmart, and this is one of the many actions they are taking to reduce expenses, adjust their asset base, and try to turn things around. What it means for you, however, is that you can help take some of their remaining inventory off their hands on the cheap.
