Company officials say they are not renewing their lease with the landlord at the property where K Mart is located in Danville. There are similar situations at 4 other sites in Michigan, Indiana, and Washington.
More than 60 people are losing their jobs as a result.
Employees will not be laid of all at once, as company officials say it will be gradual over the next 5 months.
The economy could be one factor in why the store is closing, but company officials say there are numerous reasons why a lease is not renewed.
It’s the second major store to close in Danville’s Ridgefield center on the U.S. 127/150 by-pass. Goody’s closed their store right next to K Mart.
