Kmart to Close its Last MoCo/Maryland Location
Kmart announced that the Silver Spring (Aspen Hill location) will be closing permanently.
This is last remaining Maryland location for the discount big box department store that started in 1899 as S.S. Kresge Corporation (first store named Kmart opened in 1962 and the company was renamed Kmart Corporation in 1977).
Kmart closed its other MoCo location, in the Kentlands neighborhood in Gaithersburg, back in September 2017.
Their message to customers can be seen below:
“We were gearing up to bring you another season of Kmart fun, but unfortunately that was not in the cards for us this go around.
We love sharing our store with you, but this post comes with a heavy heart—It was announced today that we will be closing our doors mid-April.
A liquidation sale began on Friday, with items marked up to 70% off. Even new arrivals for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day are marked 30% off.
“I’d be remiss to not give a wholehearted thank you to our loyal Kmart shoppers and my dedicated store team. We’ve had a lot of fun times and built an awesome community! That’s something to celebrate.
And thank you to our online Kmart family (near and far) for sharing your memories and support for this iconic brand via our Facebook page.
We hope you get the chance to come see us again 👋🏻
💙Store management + Team #4399”
