Also closing will be the Kmart on Apple Avenue in Muskegon.  Nine other Michigan Kmarts are closing, including in Lansing and and Jackson.

The Woodland Mall Sears is the only Michigan Sears closing in this round of closures.  The ownership of the Woodland Mall has released a statement saying they have already executed a lease with a fashion department store to replace the Sears.

    Sears once only carried top quality stock. When K mart bought, them they turned Sears into a K Mart.

    K Mart carried good quality stock. But let Wal Mart take over their market. If you go to Wal Mart, there is always someone willing to help you. If you go to K Mart, you can never find anyone to help you.
    The consumer speaks with their wallet.
