OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) -- Sears Holdings Corp. is closing its Kmart store in Oak Hill.

Sears Holdings spokesman Chris Barthwaite tells the Charleston Gazette that liquidation sales began last weekend and the store will close in late January.

Barthwaite says the company decided not to renew the lease for the store due to its performance. The store opened in 1993.

A majority of the store's 59 workers are part time and hourly. Barthwaite says eligible employees will receive a severance and can apply for open jobs at area Sears or Kmart stores.
