Sears To Close 100 To 120 Kmart, Sears Stores

K-Mart

Between 100 and 120 Sears and Kmart stores will be closed, the retailer said Tuesday, after terrible holiday sales during what is the most crucial time of the year for retailers.

Senh: Declining sales during the busiest shopping season is not a good sign for Kmart and Sears. I didn't know Sears own Kmart now.
