The store closed on Feb. 12, 1995, as part of a major restructuring by Kmart, leading to the closing of 110 stores in 30 states and the laying off of more than 6,000 employees. Locally, 80 Kmart workers lost their jobs.
Wilmington’s other Kmart, at 815 S. College Road, Wilmington [Map this], was actually expanded as part of the move. It is still operating.
