One of two Kmart stores in Pueblo will close in January.
The south side Kmart at Northern and Pueblo Boulevard has been in operation since the mid 1970s. The closure affects about 50 employees. Sears Holding spokesman Chris Brathwaite said those employees who are eligible will receive severance pay. Brathwaite said this is the only Kmart in the area scheduled to close.
Sears Holdings Corporation runs Sears and Kmart and has closed more than a hundred stores across the country over the last few years.
