Check Here to See if Your Local Sears or Kmart is Closing up Shop
Last week, Sears Holdings announced that the company, which has been seriously struggling of late, would be closing 78 stores in the comings months—68 of those being Kmart or Super K stores, with the other 10 being Sears locations.
In a statement published on its website on Thursday, Sears noted that the company, in recent months, made a commitment to accelerate the closing of what it called “unprofitable stores.”
“Today's announcement follows a comprehensive evaluation of the company's store portfolio that took into account historical and recent store performance, and the timing of lease expirations,” Sears explained in the statement. All of the Sears stores and most of the Kmart stores will close in late July with two Kmart stores closing in mid-September.
