Could New Hartford Kmart Be Closing In April
It looks like another area store could be closing their doors this spring.
According to an employee who wishes to remain anonymous, employees of the New Hartford Kmart were told of the closing in a recent meeting.
The anonymous employee said, "We're set to be out in April."
Along with that, the employee says the store no longer offers Western Union services, or layaway. Lottery ticket sales have also stopped.
The source says employees were told a liquidator will arrive at the New Hartford store in as little as two weeks to begin the liquidation of the store's merchandise and stock.
If the closing of the New Hartford Kmart is truly going to happen, it comes as no real surprise.
In 2016, Sears Holdings - Kmart's parent company has already closed dozens of stores across the U.S.
Representative at both the local and corporate KMart stores refused to comment or confirm the rumors.
