HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Sears Holdings will remove grocery departments at four Super Kmart stores and convert them to the nonfood Big Kmart format, a company spokeswoman told SN Wednesday.
Separately, a Super Kmart store in Phoenix will close early next year as part of a 12-store round of Sears and Kmart store closings announced this week. The conversions, set to take place in December, are set for Super Kmart stores Burlington, N.C.; Greensboro, N.C.; Memphis, Tenn.; and Thornton, Colo., the spokeswoman said.
The Phoenix Super Kmart is set to close in January, along with 11 other Sears and Kmart locations including a St. Petersburg, Fla., Sears Essential, which also offered groceries. The actions will reduce the number of Super Kmart stores to 50, the spokeswoman said. Three Super Kmart stores closed late last month.
