GULFPORT -- Kmart has announced that it will be closing stores in Waveland and Gulfport in south Mississippi. 


The closings are scheduled for mid-November. 


The closings mean the only remaining Kmart location in South Mississippi will be on U.S. Highway 49 in Gulfport. Company officials specifically say that location will remain open. 


The Gulfport location has 52 employees while there are 32 workers at the Waveland store. 


Last month, Sears Holding Corp., the owner of Kmart, announced the Sears and Sears Auto Center in Gautier will close for good in mid-October.
