LOCAL IMPACT: Sears closing 72 stores

Sears will shut down 72 stores, on top of the 180 stores already announced as closing, including one in Middletown.

The company released a list of closing stores, including 16 Sears, 49 Kmart stores and seven more auto centers, according to the Business Insider. Stores could close by September. The Sears in the Towne Mall Galleria in Middletown is one of the closing stores.

Other stores in Elyria and Columbus, Ohio also made the list.

» STORE CLOSINGS: Sears to close 50 auto centers

The company, which lost $2.2 billion in sales last year, announced earlier this year that it would close 150 Sears and Kmart stores. That decision impacted 11 Kmart and Sears stores. It is not apparent if the filing would result in any more immediate store closures or lay-offs.

“Our historical operating results indicate substantial doubt exists related to the company’s ability to continue as a going concern,” the company said during a financial report meeting.
