Sears to Close An Additional 100+ Stores

Sears to Close An Additional 100+ Stores

Struggling retailer Sears Holdings is closing another 103 stores as it continues to try to reconfigure its store footprint amid poor sales.

The latest closure list comprises 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears locations.

Sears had previously unveiled an effort to close unprofitable stores and "right size" store footprints. The majority of the jobs are part-time positions, Sears said.

Stacey Keating, director of public relations and corporate communications with CBL Properties, said Sears Holdings' announcement this week does not preclude the retailer from returning in the future.

During the most recent closings, the company shuttered Kmarts in Whitehall and South Whitehall Townships.

Linda Boggs, marketing director for the Sears mall, said the shopping center will be renamed.

When asked about when the Sears space will be razed and new construction will sprout up, Keating declined to comment.

Liquidation sales are slated to start as early as Friday.

"We've anticipated this is going to be happening for a while", she said. Those two locations were operated under the Sears brand but were not owned by Sears Holdings.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the 5900 Old Seward Highway location was also closing.
