The Somerville Kmart will close by mid-November, the Globe reports. It is the last store remaining from the old Assembly Square Mall, which opened in 1980.

Kmart is also closing stores in Brockton, Palmer, and Webster, as well as many other places throughout the country. The nearest remaining Kmarts (probably not for much longer) will be in Acton and Billerica.

The T is warning of the dreaded "severe" delays on the Orange Line inbound from Oak Grove due to a train that needs to be taken out back and shot at Assembly Square. It's so bad, the T is telling people to take the Green Line between North Station and Back Bay, assuming they can get to North Station to begin with, that is.

the Calvica "Oddseyo" horsey show has been closed for over a week and all evidence of it has finally been removed from Assembly Square, perhaps somebody should tell Clear Channel to remove the gazillion billboards along I-93 that are still advertising it.

Somerville's Good Time Emporium must close at the end of this month, to make way for IKEA construction.

Easter Sunday. For some people, it's a holy day to spend in church. For some others, a day to dress up in costume at the Hynes anime convention. And then you've got the folks at Good Time Emporium in Somerville:

Hundreds of people, some with bats and knives, fought inside the children's birthday party area at Good Time Emporium on Easter Sunday, according to police.
