Edgewood Kmart to Close

Northern Kentucky's final Kmart location will shutter by the end of the year.

The store at 3071 Dixie Highway in Edgewood was named by company officials, USA Today reported, as one of more than a hundred Kmart and Sears locations that would close around the country.

In fact, the company is also closing its Kmart store in Somerset, which will leave the entire state without any Kmart locations.

The once popular discount chain of stores has struggled in recent years, filed for bankruptcy in the early 2000s, and was later acquired by Sears, another struggling retailer.
