Kirk vs. Gorn commander

As mentioned in Sears Holdings’ Q2 2017 financial results announcement Thursday, the company informed associates at 28 Kmart stores, including the Valencia, CA location, that Sears will be closing these stores later this year as it continues to transform its business model so that the physical store footprint and the digital capabilities match the needs and preferences of its members.

(All of these stores will close in mid- November except for the Kmart in North Miami Beach, Florida, that will close in mid-December.) Eligible associates impacted by these store closures will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Kmart or Sears stores.

Customers can use the store locator function on our web sites to find the location of their nearest Kmart (http://www.kmart.com/stores.html) stores. Liquidation sales will begin as early as August 31 at these closing stores.

    WOW, we were here about a year when they built the Valencia K-mart. You couldn’t go near the corner of Valencia Blvd and Bouquet Canyon for days. Now it’s going away. Maybe a 4th Walmart will take the space. Can’t have too many Walmarts.

  2. Shannon weren’t we just talking about this a little while ago?

  3. Hoping for a giant Target!

  4. That was the only department store we had when we moved to CC. 😪

  5. Owen Ceebee Owen Ceebee says:

    I’ll miss it because walking into that Kmart is like a time warp back to the 1980s lol. The displays and lighting haven’t been updates since, but it sure felt nostalgic.

  6. Shari Barbosa-Smith Erika Smith noooo 😞

  7. Randy Rodi Randy Rodi says:

    It will become a starbucks

  8. Christina Majich Elizabeth Karsoyan 😥 so sad!

  9. Glasgow Leon Glasgow Leon says:

  10. Daryle Mercer McGilvray Volpei

  11. Loeta Thorson- ours is closing

  12. When I moved here in the late 80’s that was the only place to shop and get the kids pictures taken….

  13. Kathy Palmer Kathy Palmer says:

    That’s a bummer! I loved their Layaway!

  14. Teresa Ortiz Teresa Ortiz says:

    Martha Ortiz Maggie Ortiz

  15. Elizabeth Hilda May Price

  16. Wow.. at one point that K-Mart was the only store in that area, history being removed.

  17. Gee Miguel Gee Miguel says:

    Ebay and the net for the “W”…

  22. Sue Albert Sue Albert says:

    It wasn’t here when we moved here We only had Sears catalog store

  23. Bout time the shopping center sucks

  24. Wow! I was there for the grand opening back in 1973. It was awesome! It was the biggest store in the Santa Clarita Valley at that time. I’m sad to see it go. It holds many fun childhood memories for me – coin rides in the front, blue light specials, and the cafeteria.

  25. June 3, 1973 – Kmart was a big deal in the Santa Clarita Valley.

  26. Alina Flores this one too

  27. Who’s starting the petition for a Frys Electronics to go in its place

  28. #NoShockHere It is a ghost town when you go there. #ItsTheEndOfAnEra

  29. Robert Ortiz Robert Ortiz says:

    Will miss seeing that red K-mart sign, I guess another 99 cent store.

  30. Luis Razo Luis Razo says:

    It’s really desolate in there now.

    Last time I went there months ago for a dumb reason, some shelves were empty, the electronic section nonexistent, and the same amount of people shopping as the employees working there.

    Walmart, Target, Costco, and many of the big markets are putting the smaller ones out of business, even Amazon is taking away business.

  31. Ruby Red Ruby Red says:

    Angie Tequilita Cristy Rojas

  32. Remember blue light special

  33. That’s where Trader Joe’s should move too.

  34. It’s scary just thinking of how many places/stores/restaurants are closing. I hope the employees will find other employment easily.

  35. Sonia Torres Sonia Torres says:

    not surprised.. ive been there once in a while and its totally dead

  36. Lived here for 24 years….never went into that store one time.

  37. Sad….also shopped there. 😐😮

  38. No place to shop anymore!If Walmart puts in automatic checkout ,I won’t be going there anymore,don’t like Target!

  39. Lori Reyes Lori Reyes says:

    what fisrt nachos, now kmart

  40. I remember when it opened,everyone at work was going there on their lunch break,so excited!

  41. Celine Fobo Celine Fobo says:

  48. Well, not surprised. Been expecting this news for a few years. So few customers and such a lg. Property. Worth $$$and news a new look. How about a Costco,a whole foods now that Amazon bought them. Sears will be the next to go. They too have outlived their popularity! So much competition and better prices.
