I’m hearing that the Charlevoix, MI Kmart is closing? Has not been announced anywhere but from what I am finding out on the internet that’s whats been happening lately. The community actually stopped Walmart from coming in several years ago so this would really be a slap in the face.

  1. Try calling the store at (231) 547-0912. I tried calling tonight (8pm) no answer so either this store closes at 8 or someone doesn't know how to answer a phone.

      they close at 8 due to the winter season, normally it's later.

  2. I doubt this Kmart in Charlevoix is closing, there's insufficient information to say that it's closing plus the Store Locater still lists it with it's Store Services.

  3. That is too bad, shopped at this store two summers ago while coming home from vacationing in the Upper Peninsula. Besides needing a remodel of the bathrooms I thought this store was nice & in a great location. I believe the only store that far north now would be the one in Escanaba across the bridge. Every summer on vacation up that way we would always have to make an emergency stop at a store for something we left behind and it usually ended up being a Kmart! I was sad when the one way up in Marquette MI closed a few years ago, many memories of stopping in there with my family as a kid. My mom always forgot her bathing suit, not smart on a vacation in MI. :-)

      It seems like the company continues to close KMart's instead of investing in some infrastructure improvements. I have shopped at the Milwaukie, OR location for years. The employees were excellent - but the store was just so old. Many folks in the area had assumed the store closed years ago. I feel bad for the dedicated employees. It's so unfair to them that SHC doesn't do more things to secure their future.
