SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - Economic development officials in Spearfish say plenty of job openings exist for Kmart employees who will soon be out of work.

The retailer announced earlier this month that it plans to close the Kmart store in Spearfish, putting 51 employees out of work.

The store will begin a liquidation sale on Aug. 30 and likely shut down in mid-November. Workers will get severance pay and the opportunity to apply at other Kmart or Sears stories.

Spearfish Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Bryan Walker says workers who want to stay in Spearfish should be able to find work. He says the state Labor Department lists 801 jobs in the Spearfish market.
