Kmart will close two Philadelphia stores this spring, affecting 289 employees.

Stores at The Gallery (901-99 Market St.) and at 900 Orthodox St. will close in late April, Howard Riefs, a spokesman for Kmart parent Sears Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SHLD), said.

Stores will begin liquidation on Feb. 9.

The Gallery store has 120 employees and Orthodox Street has 169 workers, Riefs said. Most are part-time, hourly workers.

Certain employees are eligible for severance, while others may be able to get jobs at other Kmart stores. Read more about this story on PBJ.com
