Additional Kmart stores in Michigan are preparing to close next month according to ABC 12.

The next wave follows more than 130 nationwide closures that were announced this year. Seven stores are scheduled to close on December 11th, including a location in Fenton.

A report says nearly two-thirds of almost 2,200 Kmart stores operating in the U.S. have been closed since the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection nearly 15 years ago.
