K-Mart West Columbia- Photo by Terry Ward

The Kmart store at 1500 Charleston Highway in West Columbia is closing by the end of the year.

The Lexington Kmart at 748 West Main St. is closing, too.

K-Mart is closing several stores around the country.

There is a digital billboard sign where US 1 and Klapman Boulevard come together in West Columbia. It is advertising a “Closeout” sale at the West Columbia K-Mart because the store will close.

Both stores are expected to be closed by the middle of December. The company that owns Sears also owns the Kmart stores.
