No Sears stores in Mass. to close

No Massachusetts stores are on a store closing list released today by Sears Holdings Co., which controls the Sears and KMart chains.

However the list that was posted today represented just “79 of the 100 to 120 store closings” that the company said it was planning to close earlier this week. Forty one of the stores slated to close are Sears; 38 are KMarts. Sears said it would post additional closings “as they become available.”

The store closings are part of a strategy the company said it was adopting on Tuesday: directing resources to profitable stores and away from underperforming ones.

Only two stores on the closing list are in New England, both in New Hampshire: a Sears in Nashua and one in Keene.

The company did not give a closing date for any of the stores on the list, or provide the number of employees who would be fired. The release did say that “a typical store that is being closed employs between 40 and 80 associates.”
