.....more closings....51 Sears.....45 Kmarts......


Sears and Kmart store closings: 51 Sears, 45 Kmart locations to shutter. See the list

......Days after revealing sparse Black Friday ads, the company that owns Sears and Kmart announced plans to close 96 additional stores.

Transformco, which acquired the retailers out of bankruptcy, is set to shutter 51 Sears stores and 45 Kmart locations in February.

The liquidation or going-out-of-business sales will begin Dec. 2 after the Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales. Previously announced closing stores will not participate in the holiday sale.

Sears and Kmart have closed more than 3,500 stores and cut about 250,000 jobs in the past 15 years.

After this new round of closings and previously announced closings, the company will have 182 stores.

The new closings do not affect the company's recently acquired Sears Hometown stores, which specialize in home appliances, equipment and tools.



it will continue.......list at link....?!

It's okay, the Big Guys are still getting huge bags of money out of this.

Finally the Allentown, PA Sears is closing. I'm surprised it lasted this long, as the last time that I was there, 2 years ago, the store was half-empty, empty shelves lining the walls, product being minimally displayed, sections closed for "remodeling", etc. I wonder if their mall lease was up for renewal. Whitehall Mall was in sad shape anyway, I wonder how many smaller stores had their leases tied to Sears, and will now close up shop and leave as well.

It appears Sears and Kmart have been slowly gutted over the past 15 years. I feel sorry for the workers and retirees who had their pension reduced.

Our nearest store is about 500 miles away, even before the latest closings.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Yeah, it includes the one in my city. Not a surprise, not a shock, but still a blow. Shoot I bought stuff there twice in the last month. Our mall has four anchors and it's hard not to be pessimistic about what comes next.

Pretty soon it will be easier to put out a list of stores staying open.

We've had neither within a 100 miles for at least a year but probably for 2 or more.

The PA ones closing are in smaller markets. Betcha the rise in Dollar General, which specializes in small markets, is finishing those off. Not for the bigger items, necessarily, but certainly for sundries.

Last 2 full Sears stores within 50 miles of my house are closing. This round leaves just an outlet and "Home" store within that range. A couple KMarts remain within that distance, but it has been over 15 years since I shopped in one.
