Sears Closing More than 100 Stores

Ad Feedback

The Christmas shopping season wasn't good enough for Sears.

It announced today it will close between 100 and 120 Sears and Kmart stores.

Sales dropped more than 5 percent at the chains. The company says the closings will generate $140 to $170 million.

Kmart's declining sales were blamed on diminished layaways and a drop in clothing sales.

The Sears brand was hurt by lackluster home appliance sales and other big-ticket items.

It was not announced how many people will lost their jobs.

Sears has more than 4,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.
