Kmart announced just last week that the Moon store on would close in July.
Less than a week after Moon residents learned the Kmart on Market Place Boulevard would be closing, one of the world's largest energy companies made it known that the property shouldn't be vacant long.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Chevon reached agreements to acquire the store property and an adjacent, 42-acre parcel of vacant land known as Marketplace Landing that is owned by Roy F.

The U.S. Secret Service also is investigating to determine if the man is manufacturing the fake cash used to buy a laptop, according to police.

Karen Troy slipped Oct. 17, 2008 while stocking shelves.
A McCandless woman has been awarded $399,706 by an Allegheny County jury after she slipped on a freshly waxed floor while working at the McIntyre Square K-Mart in 2008, the Tribune Review reports. According to her attorney, Karen Troy, 55, fractured her back and has been unable to work for more than two years. Troy had been stocking shelves on Oct. 17, 2008 when she slipped and fell, the Trib reported. The lawsuit said an employee of A-Li Quality Services, of Parma, Ohio, was waxing the floor and failed to post notice that the floor was slick. The jury ruled A-Li was responsible for the payout, the Trib reported. --------------- The Robinson-Moon Patch thanks the new North Allegheny Patch for sharing this article!

Some Moon Township families have been beneficiaries of Kmart "angels" who have made anonymous payments on strangers' layaway accounts. Others have joined the host of generous angels who've popped up around the country during the holiday season.
Across the country this holiday season, anonymous benefactors have dropped into local Kmarts and paid off layaway balances for families with children. It’s difficult to tell where this trend of generosity started—you can see reports of the donations reported by Patch sites across the country [ above ]—but it’s clear that where “layaway angels” tread, tears of joy follow. In Moon, "angels" have worked their magic by paying down balances for at least a half-dozen families who had laid away items at the Kmart on Beaver Grade Road. Others have turned up to pay the layaway orders of customers at the Super Kmart on Marketplace Boulevard. Elsewhere in Western Pennsylvania, anonymous benefactors also have shown up and helped "a bunch" of families …

The Christmas-season trend has an impact on more than a dozen customers of Moon Township Kmart stores.
It just might be Gary Kennedy's favorite part of the Christmas season. "It actually makes me cry," said Kennedy, store manager for Kmart on Beaver Grade Road. "I get to make another call in about five minutes." Kennedy said "Kmart angels"—anonymous donors who have been paying off Kmart layaway orders for strangers this Christmas season —have worked their magic on six families who patronize his store. Anonymous benefactors have been dropping into Kmart locations from California to Maryland and paying the remaining layaway balance of families chosen at random. The generous trend has extended to Moon Township, Kennedy said. When a donor comes into the store, staff members choose families who are deliquent on their balances or who have …
