ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - The Kmart store in Ashwaubenon, right near Lambeau Field, will close its doors in mid-July.

FOX 11 reports that the store will begin a liquidation sale on Sunday. That Kmart employs 80 people. 

Officials with parent company Sears Holdings say they will also close their store in Shawano.

“Store closures are part of a series of actions we’re taking to reduce on-going expenses, adjust our asset base, and accelerate the transformation of our business model. As part of this plan, the company has made the decision to close this particular unit. These actions will better enable us to focus our investments on serving our customers and members through integrated retail – at the store, online and in the home,” said Howard Riefs, communications director for Sears Holdings.

The Ashwaubenon Kmart is sitting on property owned by the Green Bay Packers. It's expected to be redeveloped as part of the team's "Titletown District".
