La Porte Kmart among latest round of Sears and Kmart store closures

Sears Holdings announced Wednesday it plans to close 78 Kmart and 26 Sears locations across the country, including the Kmart store on West State Road 2 in La Porte. That brings the total number of stores closing this spring to 150. 

Its a part of the company's ongoing plan to evaluate store space and productivity, and accelerate the closing of some unprofitable stores.

The company said in a statement, "The decision to close stores is a difficult but necessary step as we take actions to strengthen the Company’s operations and fund its transformation. Many of these stores have struggled with their financial performance for years and we have kept them open to maintain local jobs and in the hopes that they would turn around. But in order to meet our objective of returning to profitability, we have to make tough decisions and will continue to do so, which will give our better performing stores a chance at success. Eligible associates impacted by these store closures will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Kmart or Sears stores.”

Liquidation sales will begin as early as January 6 at all closing stores.
