Sears and Kmart closing 72 more stores — here’s all the ones in NJ
Sears is closing 72 more stores — including three in New Jersey — expanding a list of closures that now reaches into the hundreds.
The new closures, according to Business Insider, include a Sears in Vineland, and Kmart locations Mantua and Manahawkin.
In all, the new closings include 16 Sears stores, 49 Kmart stores, and seven auto centers nationwide, according to the report. Most of the closures will take place in September.
The company was already slated to close more than 180 stores nationwide in 2017, and hinted earlier this year it might shut down entirely. Kmart stores in Clemonton, East Brunswick, Pleasantville and Rio Grande were scheduled to be shuttered at the end of March, according to an announcement from Sears Holdings, the parent company of the chain.
Also this year, JCPenney announced plans to close 138 stores across the country including its Rio Grande store as retailers continue to struggle. Macy’s announced plans to close additional stores in 2017— including stores in Moorestown, Voorhees and Wayne. Staples will close 70 stores.
