K-Mart Store in Everett, WA Closing
The Everett K-Mart is going the way of White Front, House of Values and Ernst.
After holding on at the corner of 79th and Evergreen Way for more than 40 years, the K-Mart store in Everett will be closing. An inventory reduction sale has started and the Everett store no longer accept coupons or deals in the weekly circular. A supervisor told me they received word four days ago that the store would be closing sometime in September but the final date depends on when they get rid of the remaining inventory. Clerks were referring customers to stores in Marysville and Burlington for future purchases and coupon redemptions. No word on if the opening of the new Wal-Mart on Everett Mall Way had any impact on the corporate decision to close the Everett K-Mart store. The Wal-Mart will be opening at about the same time K-Mart closes. It will however, be another hit to the retail sales tax base for the City of Everett.
