MOOSIC -- Some familiar retailers in our area are closing their doors.

Sears, which also owns Kmart, announced the closures of a number of both stores in Pennsylvania, including four in our area.

The news comes as Sears Holdings continues to shut down stores it says are no longer profitable.

The Kmart stores in our area that will be closed include Moosic in Lackawanna County and Shamokin Dam in Snyder County.

Sears stores in State College in Centre County and Muncy in Lycoming County will also close.

Sears Holdings says most of the jobs that will be cut are part-time and those people will receive severance pay while being given the opportunity to apply at other locations.

The Sears and Kmart stores are expected to be closed by late January 2018.

    Good riddance Customer Service was terrible, I told you that you cant survive doing business like this, astalavista baby

  • john williams

    ATTENTION KMART SHOPPERS: will the last customer to leave please turn off the lights…………………………………….

  • Givemeabreak

    More and more of these places are going to close because of online shopping. Amazon is killing these stores and just keeps growing.

  • Turdcutter

    Blue Light specials in the Frackville Mall used to mean that the street roamers, priests, altar boys, boy scouts, youth sport coaches, teachers, borough council members, and fire company fellows all met up for a slam-slam rumpus. Anyone know if SEDCO or SKIP sponsored this? SKOOOOOOK

  • Soiled bvds and fire sirens

    I leave just outside Moosic but this doesn’t concern me any. I do all my shopping in the Skook. It’s a drive but I don’t mind. Boili candles, gently used 1985 fire department half shirts and little trinkets made of coal. I’ll probably move down there now seeing as the street roamers are starting to seek shelter in the abandoned, fire trap row houses.

    • longgreysocks

      Sh@T stained penn state gear is hard to find in the skook as well without Kmart. I hoping they put a Goodwill store in in downtown frackville so i can get that along with some good long grey sock and navy blue jogging pants. Fire company halfshirts are a dime a dozen here, i will have no problem finding those.

    • longgreysocks

      If you live in Shenandoah, there is a dollar store on the goldstar highway next to the turkey run hud projects. Thats the only place in the northern skook you really can teddy bears, joggers, grey socks and those sentimental type of coal region items.

  • longgreysocks

    The kmart in the schuylkill mall in Frackville pa had good high sock deals. Very High demand in the greater frackville/shenandoah for those type of socks along with navy blue jogging pants styles from 1988 made the store a hit. Kmart needs to reopen a store in frackville asap!

  • trucker

    A case from Scott township Knick vs Scott township is going before the Unites States Supreme Court and no coverage, zero zilch nada. Instead you cover kmart and some possum. The Carnahan and Ciavarella local media at it’s worst.

    Hahahaha! I’m sorry, but I’ve been waiting for Kmart in moosic to close its doors for a long time! I literally told my husband last week, that it shouldn’t be much longer and here it is! Problem was ALWAYS the LACK of customer service or genuine customer help! Even with so-called corporate. I’ve been waiting for my $10 gift card for 5+ years. Thanks! If anything, this is a service to our community. And to all those ignorant kids that worked there behind the service desk, I laugh. And how many times did wnep do Black Friday shopping stories for this store. Oh the lines of people when clearly there were 4 individuals waiting to buy crap. I’m sure we’ll see another story on how this will be the last Black Friday for this store lol. Oh I’m so giddy this morning!

      I’m glad somebody else isn’t afraid to say what I’m thinking. One of my favorite signs I’ve ever seen is, “Some people are alive only because it is illegal to kill them.” I see no shortage of such people on a daily basis. Anyway, good on you for saying what more people need to be told.

  • Bchem

    The ignorance of people is astonishing.Trump/MAGA had NOTHING to do with this.These stores have been going down hill for years. But it is Trumps fault? How pathetic,what about all the ones that closed during the Obama administration?? I guess that was Trumps fault also.And the purely most asinine comment is closing stores for a tax break.Yup,close stores that are making money to save money on taxes and leave open the stores loosing money.Child like thinking.Going to be cloudy today,stupid Trump.If Hillary was president it would be sunny and 80 degrees.Oh wait that would be global warming/cooling/climate change or something.

    • EddieLampertIsScum

      If by making it great again you mean making the rich richer while the employees suffer then I agree. What’s funniest is all the vultures who will swarm down on these stores thinking 10-20% off MSRP is this GREAT deal. Meanwhile I’ve been getting phenomenal deals from these stores for YEARS that put the store closing “deals” to shame just by shopping there and scouting prices. Saw the same in Dickson City when Sears and Kmart closed a year or so apart. People are idiots and the CEO of this company is setting himself up to be the largest creditor owed money by his own companies. Great tax writeoff for him every year. He’s a scumbag and should join Martin Shkreli(drug CEO who gouged on prices) in prison.
