It couldn't hurt

Posted: Wednesday, January 22, 2003

Is the announced closing of Kmart final? Do you think the corporate office would hear and respond if we were to write letters, asking them to keep the store open?

I have found Kmart a great place to shop. Friendly people, good prices throughout the store; and an abundant supply of goods and materials. I know there are many factors that went into the decision-making process in closing all of the Alaska stores, as well as the many stores in the Lower 48.

I do not know if the corporate office will respond positively or not, but I want to encourage everyone to write and ask them not to close the store. E-mail should be addressed to

Write today, asking the company to keep the local store open. It never hurts to make the effort, especially in a store that is making a profit.
