Two more Valley Kmart stores will be closing their doors shortly. 

Sears Holding announced on Thursday that an additional 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears stores will be closed for good. 

Among the list of impacted stores are Kmart locations in Niles and Hermitage. 

According to the company, employees at the stores were notified Thursday morning that the closures would take place. 

A company spokesperson could not clarify how many employees are being affected. 

However, a statement from the company says, "Eligible associates will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores."

As of the latest round of closings, only two Kmart locations remain in the Valley- New Castle and East Liverpool. 

Liquidation sales are slated to begin as early as January 12th. 

No exact date was given for the stores final day, however, the location is slated to be closed by "early April". 

The Austintown Kmart is expected to close at the end of the month. The store's last day is set for January 28. 

Shoppers at both locations expressed concerns about the stores closing.

"I don't like seeing any stores close," stated Mark Potter of Warren.

"I like the deal I can get on clothing at Kmart," said Anne Mercer of Hermitage. "I'll miss it."

Other are worried about the future of Hermitage.

"It's a nice place to call home, but everything seems to be going away," Jennifer Chiodo of Sharpsville said. "It is sad to see it go."
