Sears Holdings Announces Store Closures

Various media outlets Wednesday began reporting news of Kmart store closures throughout the United States, as Sears Holdings began a review of its store network.  At least 29 closures of Kmart stores were confirmed by multiple media outlets Wednesday afternoon, as a company spokesperson remarked that the decisions regarding store closures were performance-based.  A small number of Sears and Sears Hometown stores are also expected to close their doors in spring of 2016.

Note: Several stores reported as closing by certain media outlets have been closed for some time (Glendale, AZ for example), or, as in the case of the Duluth, MN store, are remaining open.
