JASPER -- The K-Mart store in Jasper is on a long list of stores that plan to close nationwide as part of the Sears bankruptcy deal, according to multiple national news organizations.  The Jasper store is located at 723 3rd Avenue.

A manager at K-Mart in Jasper told WITZ Radio News they had not heard anything from the company about the reported closure.   

Liquidation sales at the additional stores are expected to begin within two weeks, according to a court filing released Monday.
