Sears is closing more Sears and Kmart stores.
The two retailers’ parent company, Transform Holdco, announced in a press release on Tuesday that 26 stores will close in late October, with liquidation sales expected to begin around August 15. Included in the closures are 21 Sears and five Kmart stores.
It also said it would open more of its small-format stores.
“After careful review of where we are today, we believe the right course for the company is to accelerate the expansion of our smaller store formats which includes opening additional Home & Life stores and adding several hundred Sears Hometown stores after the Sears Hometown and Outlet transaction closes,” the company said in a press release.
“We have made the difficult but necessary decision to close 26 large-format Sears and Kmart stores in late October.”
The announcement also said that the Sears Auto Centres at the closing locations will remain open until late August.
