CHARLES CITY — The final two K-Mart stores in Iowa, located here in north-central Iowa are closing. Sears Holdings, the parent company of K-Mart, confirms that their stores in Charles City and Algona will be closing in February. Employees of both stores were informed earlier this week of the decision, with liquidation sales at those locations expected to start in a couple of weeks. A number of K-Mart stores have closed across Iowa in the last year, including those in Webster City and Cherokee. Sears Holdings last month had announced another round closings would take place, but most of the locations impacted were not revealed at the time.
