Sears Holdings, the parent company of Sears and Kmart, doesn’t like articles about how many stores it’s closing. Instead, the company tries to limit news releases about its plans to local news outlets. The company reportedly plans to close 49 Kmart discount stores, 16 Sears department stores, and seven Sears Auto Centers.
Business Insider obtained a list of Sears Holdings stores slated for closing, which the site says comes from a source inside the company. Depending on whether you count Sears department stores and Sears Auto Centers together or separately, either 65 or 72 stores will be closing.
Sears has been trying in recent months to stave off a death spiral, making moves that include corporate office layoffs, selling its Craftsman tool brand, the sale of more and more real estate to a real estate investment trust largely owned by the chairman and CEO of Sears, and of course, store closings.
Here are the three lists, which you can sort by town or by state depending on your preference.
Sears department stores
Sears Auto Centers
These mostly overlap with the Sears department store closings.
