The Blue Light is about to go out for good on the Fairhaven Kmart.

The store will close its doors in mid-April, selectmen confirmed to WBSM News on Wednesday. Howard Riefs, company spokesman for Sears Holdings told The Standard-Times that the company "has accelerated the closing of unprofitable stores."

The Fairhaven location will begin a liquidation sale on January 6 before closing permanently in mid-April.

Riefs also said that eligible employees would receive severance and could apply for positions at other Sears and Kmart locations.
