More than 60 Kmart and Sears stores closing – see list


Sears Holdings announced that it will be closing 63 Kmart and Sears stores after the 2017 holiday shopping season.

The company announced the closure to employees at the affected store (see list below) on Thursday. The closures will affect employees in 26 states, with 45 Kmart stores and 18 Sears stores slated for removal.

The stores will remain open following the holiday season until late January 2018, although Sears will be closing their automotive centers at 15 locations in early December.

In 2017, Sears Holdings announced closures at 308 Kmart and Sears stores, according to Business Insider. At that time, Sears CEO Eddie Lampert said, “This is part of a strategy both to address losses from unprofitable stores and to reduce the square footage of other stores because many of them are simply too big for our current needs.”
