Is Kmart Bankrupt? Does Kmart still exist?
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 7 Kmart stores remaining with 1 in the process of liquidating to soon make it a total of 6 stores.
