Triangle's last Kmart store set to close

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's the end of an era for what was once a major retailer in the Triangle.

The last Kmart store in Raleigh is officially closing.

The store at 8701 Six Forks Road officially announced that it is liquidating all of its items in preparation for official closure by mid-February.

Sears Holding, Kmart's parent company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2018 and has been closing Sears and Kmart stores across the country.

According to Kmart's website, three stores remain in North Carolina -- Clemmons, Kill Devil Hills, and Waynesville. ABC11 viewers, however, tell us only the Kill Devil Hills store remains open.
