MANTENO — Embattled Kmart Corp. has announced it will close its 1.5-million-square-foot distribution center in Manteno, eliminating 130 jobs.

An employee told the Daily Journal that the announcement was made to employees this morning. Company officials on hand for the announcement said the final day for operations will be March 27.

Once a distribution mecca with Sears and Kmart building massive complexes, the announcement leaves the village in northern Kankakee County with a large hole to fill.
