From Sears Holding
As part of our ongoing efforts to streamline Sears Holdings’ operations, strengthen our capital position and focus on our best stores, this week the company informed associates at 46 unprofitable stores that we will be closing these stores in November2018. We continue to evaluate our network of stores, which is a critical component to our integrated retail transformation, and will make further adjustments as needed. We thank associates affected by these store closures for their many contributions to our company. Eligible associates will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Kmart or Sears stores. Customers can use the store locator function on our web sites to find the location of their nearest Kmart and Sears stores.
Liquidation sales will begin as early as August 30 at these closing stores. For our most recent public disclosure of Sears and Kmart store counts, see Sears Holdings.
About Sears Closing
Certainly this number includes Sears stores and Kmart stores. Even more, this is in addition to the 166 store closing from March and April 2018. Also, the company had 1,002 stores as of early February, down from 1,980 stores in 2013. Due to that it closed another 103 stores in April, in addition to the 40 stores that will close by August. Because of that, sears has cut its number of stores by half within the past 5 years. Hence, their associates in these stores will receive severance and have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores.
The bad news: more lost jobs.
