So far, so good
Sears stores are spared in Texas — for now
The Christmas season's usually-bountiful retail sales did little to help struggling Sears and Kmart stores. After a foreboding fourth quarter, Sears Holdings Corporation announced on Tuesday that it planned to close 100 to 120 of its stores.
On Thursday, the company released a list representing the first 80 Kmart, Sears Full-Line, Sears Hardlines Only and Grand/Essentials stores slated for closure.
Though multiple outlets in Ohio, Fla., Ala., Tenn., Minn., Va. and more will be shutting operations at a later date (yet to be announced), luckily for us, no Texas stores made the preliminary list.
Looks like — dinginess and all — Sears stores in Houston are safe for now. Stay tuned for further updates.
