JACKSON, Mich (WLNS) – Employees at a Kmart in Jackson have been told they’ll be losing their jobs just before Christmas.

The store on the 3000 block of Michigan Avenue will close it’s doors for good in mid-December.

Officials confirmed the closing to our media partners at the Jackson Citizen Patriot and MLive today.

The company had announced a plan to shut down 68 stores nationwide.

The corporation says the decision boils down to the fact that the store just wasn’t turning a profit.

Jackson is one of the only cities in Michigan that has more than one Kmart.
