Kmart employee chokes up as he makes his final announcement


Some shoppers might be sad to see Kmart stores go, after the chain’s parent company, Sears Holdings, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday. But there’s likely nobody as emotional about saying farewell to the store’s McMurray, Penn., location as store manager Joshua Englert, who got teary while giving his last announcement over the PA system.

Taking to his Facebook on Sunday evening, Englert posted a video of himself saying, “Attention, Kmart shoppers” over the store’s PA system for the very last time after working at the superstore for 18 years.

“I started when I was 16 as a cashier and worked my way up to store manager by the time I was 23,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I’ve never met such a wonderful group of people in my life like my Kmart family.”
