Sears To Close More Of Its Locations

Sears is quietly closing at least two dozen stores in 17 states, in addition to the 166 stores that the company previously said it would close this year. Most of the stores on the new list will close by mid July, with liquidation sales beginning April 27. Sears has not publicly announced many of the store closings slated for July. Business Insider confirmed the list of closing stores based on information from multiple Sears employees. Sears spokesman Howard Riefs told Business Insider earlier this week that some employees at closing stores would be eligible for severance. "Those associates that are eligible will receive severance and have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores." Sears has cut its store count in half within the last five years. The company had 1,002 stores as of early February, down from 1,980 stores in 2013. It's closing another 103 stores this month, in addition to the 24 stores that will close by July.
