CORINTH – Nearly a year after it closed its Fulton Crossing location, Kmart should be up and running again in 2011.
“We will reopen,” said company spokeswoman Kimberly Freely. “We just don’t have an exact date yet.”
However, Freely said the company hopes to have the store ready by February or March.
Kmart was one of several stores that closed after a severe storm on May 2 flooded and damaged many of them.
The discount retailer is one of the anchors for the nearly 180,000-square-foot Fulton Crossing Shopping Center. The other major anchor, Kroger, reopened June 18.
Store fixtures, which include shelves, racks and other displays, have been ordered for the store, Freely said.
At least some of them have arrived at the Corinth store, which was the scene of some activity on Wednesday. Several vehicles were in the parking lot, including a heating and cooling van.
Kmart opened its Corinth store in 1992.
