Kmart in Temecula to close in February

The Kmart at 26471 Ynez Road in Temecula is among the latest casualties for struggling retailer Sears Holdings.

The store will close in February, the company announced Thursday, Nov. 8.

The parent company is closing 40 more Sears and Kmart stores. This is in addition to the 142 locations that Sears Holdings said last month it would close, which included a Riverside location.

The company filed for bankruptcy protection in October.

A liquidation sale for the Temecula store is expected to happen later this month.
