HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The last Kmart store in South Mississippi will be closing its doors in March.

A list posted on the Sears Holdings' website has the Gulfport location as one of 80 stores that will be closing.

“Liquidation sales at these stores are expected to begin in two weeks,” the release said.

The store is located at 12057 U.S. Highway 49 in Orange Grove.

Sears Holdings operates through its subsidiaries, including Sears, Roebuck and Co. and Kmart Corporation, with full-line and specialty retail stores across the United States.

This location is the latest in closings from the company, including a Kmart store once located at the corner of Cowan Lorraine and Pass roads in Gulfport and a Sears store once at the Edgewater Mall in Biloxi.

According to the Kmart website, the only other store left in Mississippi is located in Columbus. There are 16 Sears locations still operating in the state, according to the website.
