At BroStocks we have a soft spot for the classic retail chains that played a big part in our childhood memories. This is the first in a multipart series in tracking the remaining open locations of the classic and troubled traditional retail chains that are marching on during the age of Amazon and e-commerce. You might be surprised that some of these stores are open near where you live.
Is Kmart Bankrupt?
Kmart initially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on January 22, 2002. Kmart was then merged with Sears after buying out the company for $11 billion in November 2004 and became known as Sears Holdings Corporation. Sears Holdings declared bankruptcy in October 2018. The remaining Kmart imprint was later sold to Transform Co in February 2019 and since the stores have continued to close, leaving only 35 Kmart stores remaining.
