Thurs. 3:37 p.m.: Kmart will remain open

WARREN – Kmart at the Trumbull Plaza will not be closing, the retail chain’s parent company announced today.

News the store at 2485 Parkman Road NW will remain open comes just one day after Sears Holdings announced it would be closing the store as “part of a series of actions” the company is taking to reduce spending, adjust its asset base and hasten the transformation of its new business model.

A company spokesman said changes to the lease agreement lets the store stay open and continue to employ its 68 associates.
