Topics regarding layoffs at Kmart
I work at sears and posted this over at Sears templates69.ru. I thought it was good news so I wanted to post it over here. Hang in there guys: So I was getting ready to take my son on our annual scouting camp out and wanted to get him a new knife. A... read more
Have either of the Manhattan Kmarts (Penn Station and / or Astor Place) begun renovations / remodels yet?
This time it is the Cambridge Kmart in Ohio. All the people from the store will be gone by April 8. Stores are falling like dominoes lately. I wonder how long before there is nothing left to fall... read more
For stores that still have the Shoes Lead and Fine Jewelry Lead what has been the trend with those positions. We are seeing that in other areas they will be changed to coordinators but what is the difference from being a lead? Also if they do not... read more
Email in store today that the cuts in the Kmarts were not satisfied and more layoffs will be coming down. If you weren't cut consider yourself lucky but do not think it's over. Within the next week expect it. No meetings this time. There will also be... read more
Are there any current or former employees, that know if K-mart is sub-leasing property? Or are they pulling out completely? I worked there a few years ago.
I think I over heard something (and could have been wrong) but I believe we don't provide Western Union service anymore at our Kmart. I remember reading that is one of signs that a Kmart being closed down is coming soon. Anyone can confirm this?
1987 Ft Myers Florida. You had to drive the parking lot over and over to find a parking spot. The inside of the store was packed with at least eight registers open if not more. This was the norm for this store and is closed now. From then to now it... read more
We were told that we will not have jobs after early April. Our store is set to close then. Is K-mart re-leasing to other tenants?
So sad this sight has nothing but lies and untrue statements. Yes the company is in dire times but to come on here and raise the stress levels of hard working associates is pure ignorance. Get a life and please keep your drama for your novel and not... read more
Does anyone have any information on the results of Tuesday's Store Managers meetings? Changes? Layoffs?
Does anyone have any information on whether it's true that there is a Kmart Store Manager meeting on Tuesday? It has been talked about on the Sears Layoff blog. Talk is that they are eliminating F/T and ASM positions this week.

OUR STORE'S PROPANE CAGE FOR THE FORKLIFT WAS TAKEN LAST WEEK. DOES THIS MEAN THAT WE'RE CLOSING? WE ONLY HAVE ANOTHER FULL TANK FOR THE FORKLIFT!!!
In one years time we’ve lost our pharmacy,stopped selling propane and stopped making keys. Vendors have pulled all magazines. No coke or Pepsi products being delivered, hardly anything on the selves in sporting goods.Two different groups of people... read more
Very simple. Bond matures in October 2018, meaning Eddie has to come up with billions by then. If you think he's gonna fork out billions at this stage of the game, I have a bridge to sell you in New York... read more

Anyone heard anything about if we reached the goal to avoid company liquidation?
Just laughed my a-- off at the snl skit. Pretty much true to from at my kmart. Oh the life of a customer service associate in this store.
Dayum. Our Kmart is down 60% in sales compared to last year. Why the drop? No print ad distributed in the area, none in the store, and none online... yep, that 45 page Thanksgiving/Black Friday ad never made it online, where corporate tells us to... read more
Been worried that my job wasn't eliminated yet. Two new supervisor positions were created, hardlines and softlines, but I'm still here..Is it based on sales, volume. Just curious how safe I am..
Black Friday last year was over a hundred waiting to get in, this year about 6. Ad s---ed, product scarce..Weekend kind of busy but nothing compares to last year. January will be the deciding factor but already heard over 140 Kmarts closing..If you... read more

My store closed in July. Although I'm still out of work,I am thankful to be home with my family. Miss my Kmart family,good luck this weekend!
So sad at this time of year so many Kmarts closing. Pictures of the stores, the associates.. Memories made, friendships made and pride in working in a store that was called home..Thankful that Eddie will never take away the love each and every... read more
Insiders say this is happening in February of all existing Kmarts..The whole side will be going bye bye..Sears side will not be touched which is sad..Having been in a few Sears stores lately brings the question why?? Kmart has and continues to be... read more
Some of the big firms are Hilco Global, Gordon Brothers, Tiger Capital, and Great American Group. Does anyone know if it's one of those or someone else?
During a visit with my store's QMT, he said that all stores that weren't announced to close in November, will be announced to close in February.
I live near Paducah. I heard from a Paducah realtor yesterday, that the Paducah store was closing. He did not volunteer who he heard it from. May or may not be true? Thought I would post it anyway. Goodluck to all those who work there.
So much doom and gloom. I know its hard coming in to work every day and not knowing if you have a devastating announcement. So much negativity heard every day. I have been through alot in my long years here but continue to bust my butt every day. A... read more
I'm just wondering if anyone knows if LC is concerned about all the Kmarts closing down and Sear's future in very serious doubt. I'm curious if their contract is going to be up in the near future and if they are not going to bother with them in the... read more
We just hired 6 high school kids at my Kmart store. Boy howdy, they are annoying... They constantly talk to each other, take extended breaks, watch "videos" in the bathroom, and don't bother looking for anything when doing reshop. Two of them decided... read more

I am retired from the company and living in Laramie, WY. Our kmart is still open. Today, at the Safeway store, there was a big sign that said "welcome kmart pharmacy customers". Are all pharmacies closing, or just ours? Nothing on line that I can... read more
Was always a nice place to go It’s a shame the have closed the store that started it all!! They closed all the KMarts within a 20 mike radius and it’s a shame! The buildings just sit empty. Wonder who pays for the parking lot to be lit at night? Nice... read more
Have not posted for a while. Has anyone heard anything about the Paducah K-mart?
This cannot be possibly right!!! I don't think there are even 12,000 Sears left right?!
I am going to be a doomsayer as I have been on this site but I do not care. I'm sure that Sears itself will not die next year (though won't be surprised if it does) and perhaps they can hang on for a bit longer. But don't think for a second that... read more
