The last day for the ‘Big K’


On Monday, any exterior sign of “Kmart” was wiped away as the “Big K” on the front of the store’s former home was removed. The doors officially closed on the Gallipolis location on Sunday, after months of liquidation sales. Back in December, Sears Holdings announced 78 additional Kmart stores and 26 Sears stores would be closing this spring nationally, among them, the Kmart store in Gallipolis. It’s estimated around 50 employees were to be displaced due to closure of the location on Upper River Road.
