Golden Gate, Port Charlotte Kmarts to close

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Two Southwest Florida Kmart stores will close in the spring of 2017, Business Insider reports.

The stores, at 4955 Golden Gate Parkway in Golden Gate near Naples and 19400 Cochran Blvd. in Port Charlotte, are among more than 30 Sears and Kmarts that will shut their doors between late March and mid-April.

Liquidation sales are scheduled to begin next month.

Six other Kmarts will close across Florida, a half-dozen employees told Business Insider. The company hasn’t made a public announcement yet but delivered the message internally.

Falling sales appear to be at the root of the move by Sears Holdings, which controls Sears and Kmart.
