Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based Sears Holding Company has released a partial list of Sears and Kmart stores it will close after a disappointing holiday shopping season. Included in the Georgia closings are a Sears store at Macon Mall in Macon and a Kmart store on Buford Highway in Buford. (A Kmart store already closed last month on Buford Highway in Doraville)
The list includes 79 stores slated for closure though the chain may eventually close between 100 and 120 stores.
Where did it all go wrong for these two storied retailers? Should the two companies not have merged? What other metro locations of Sears or Kmart do you think may be shuttered? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
