WISE, VA. - The K-Mart in Wise, Virginia will be closing in April. The store is one of the anchors in the shopping center.
According to a statement from the company the store is being closed because the lease was not renewed.
K-Mart continues to revamp its business model. For shoppers like Danielle McMillan its some hard news to take. "I think its pretty sad." said McMillan "I mean it's putting a lot of the workers out of a job. Some people that come in they get the k-mart deals like that. We're going to miss that."
