Kmart closes indefinitely for repairs


Management for Kmart and Furniture Club on East Burnside Road locked the doors Tuesday, July 2, posting signs saying the building was closed for repairs.

Officials with the building’s owner, New Jersey-based US Realty 86 Associates, would not comment on the sudden closure or what is thought to be a structural problem with the building. They did, however, acknowledge the shut-down was for safety reasons.

Eric Schmidt, director of community development services with the city of Gresham, said he expected permits for work “on a few different areas of the roof” to be issued this week.
