ALEXANDRIA -- Kmart stores in Alexandria and Fergus Falls are set to close this spring.

The Alexandria store will close to the public in mid-May, according to Howard Reifs, director of corporate communications for Sears Holdings.


Until then, the store will remain open for customers. It will begin its liquidation sale Feb. 23.

The store is being closed because the lease was not renewed, according to Reifs.
