Sears Holdings To Close 78 Stores This Summer

by Katie Lee

Hoffman Estates, Ill. — Sears Holdings will close 68 Kmart and 10 Sears stores this summer.

In February, the company said that it would accelerate the closing of unprofitable stores. Today’s announcement follows a comprehensive evaluation of the company’s store portfolio that took into account historical and recent store performance, and the timing of lease expirations. All of the Sears stores and nearly all of the Kmart stores will close in late July; two Kmart stores will close in mid-September.

“The decision to close stores is a difficult but necessary step as we take aggressive actions to strengthen our company, fund our transformation and restore Sears Holdings to profitability,” says Edward S. Lampert, chairman and CEO of Sears Holdings. “We’re focusing on our best members, our best categories and our best stores as we work to accelerate our transformation.”
