Kmart closes doors

Kmart closes doorsThe local Kmart closes its doors for good after announcing its closure in May. Ridgecrest’s Kmart was one of hundreds of Kmart and Sears stores closing around the country as a result of falling profits. For the last several months, inventory was whittled down as local shoppers purchased the remaining items for clearance prices. — Photo illustration by Laura Austin
