The building will not be empty it was sold to Meijer. It is not closing due to poor sales or anything like that . The owner of the building is looking at $$$ signs. He doesn't care of the people working there or if our community likes the store. This is a business decision for his pocket!! I feel for all losing their jobs, I worked there at one time and there are good people there!! If anyone read the paper it stated Meijer will be opening in 2017. Good bye Kmart in Bradley I for one will miss shopping there!!!

This is one of the cleanest, neatest Kmart's I've seen anywhere. They really kept it up in spite of not having enough payroll or corporate support. It is always fully stocked and well maintained. Unfortunately, Ed Lampert is not interested in being a retailer or helping Kmart thrive or even survive. One by one Kmart stores are closing. 1,500 stores have been closed since he took over Kmart ten years ago. He won't be happy until they are ALL gone. Very sad for one person to have the control to ruin an icon like Kmart!!!!! Not to mention all the employee's lives he has ruined!

I used to work at kmart, management was horrible they treated the employees like crap. It may have looked busy but sales were always horrible,we always got yelled at when things didn't go well like it was our fault, which is why I had to leave not only that they wont work with school schedules or forget to. I hope everyone can find a new job fast, its sad to start the new year with this hell of knowing you will loose your job. But, this kmart was going to close we all knew it, there has been talk since last year in the summer that they were otherwise going to close before Christmas or after. Also they randomly laid off half the people in August so that tells you that things are not going well.

I agree! What can we do about this? Kmart in Bradley is the best Kmart around . beats tinley park kmar! I have loved shopping at Kmart since Iwas young and iI'm 54. II'm very sad about this. It is my favorite store. I buy my sons clothes there and mine too! I don't like Walmart .

I believe this is one of the stores SHC has been in talks with Meijer executives about selling off. Other Super Kmart stores being sold to Meijer are in Ohio. Mentor, Ohio Super Kmart has already been sold to Meijer yet still remains open as Super Kmart. Bradley is also a gap in Meijer's Illinois presence.

I am so sad about this. I shop here all of the time. I do not understand why it is closing it is always busy when I am there and I cannot stand to have to go and shop at Walmart.

I will drive all the way to Orland to go to Meijer instead I refuse to shop at Walmart.

This is huge loss for our community. I don't want to see another empty building in our area. Kmart is a great store and I have been shopping there since I was a kid. Many people I know prefer Kmart over Walmart. I am sad for the people that work there and the customers that have been loyal for many years. Lets all fight to keep Kmart open!!!!
