Merry Christmas...you're FIRED!

Guess that case of Flint pity has worn off - the home improvement retail giant has announced that they're closing 51 underperforming stores...including two in Genesee County.

20 of the stores are in the United States and 31 are in Canada.

The store on Court St. in Burton and the store on Mansour Blvd in Flint will be closing by February 1st. The company said that they will try to find positions for employees at nearby stores.

The two in Genesee County are the only two stores in Michigan that are scheduled to close. Most store closings are at locations that are within ten miles of another.

Womp womp.
