Sears and Kmart Closing 72 More Stores

Sears announced that they are closing 72 more Sears and Kmart stores as part of their ongoing efforts to streamline the company’s operations and focus on their best stores. They have identified 100 non-profitable stores, 72 of which will begin store closing sales in the near future.These store closures are in addition to the more than 160 locations Sears has already closed this year.

The company on Thursday, May 31 informed associates at 15 Kmart stores and 48 Sears stores listed
below that we will be closing these stores in early September 2018. Eligible associates impacted by these store closures will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Kmart or Sears stores.

Liquidation sales will begin as early as June 14 at these closing stores. (Note – a small group of stores was pulled from the closing list of 72 stores on May 31 as they are being evaluated further). This list will be updated as appropriate.
