It's sad to see these stores go! Sears Holdings just announced the impending closure of even more Kmart and Sears locations, totaling a whopping 236 stores closing in 2017. Sears Holdings said that an additional 35 Kmart and eight Sears stores will shut their doors permanently before the end of the year in an effort to "focus on our best stores and return to profitability."
Below are the new locations that are on their way out.
Stores marked with a single asterisk are scheduled to close in early August; locations marked with a double asterisk will shut their doors in early October. The company is maintaining the closures to fund the "transformation" of the company to focus on smaller "concept stores", where customers can shop from a smaller selection integrated with a membership rewards program.
It's the end of an era for Kmart and Sears!
