Sears closing Waterloo store by early April

Sears closing Waterloo store by early April

After April, Sears will still operate traditional stores at the Concord and Dover malls while keeping its "Hometown Stores" in Seaford and Middletown and its appliance outlet store in Newark.

The Iowa stores are among 103 Sears and Kmart stores the company on Thursday announced are closing.

Sears had already been planning to downsize in Orland Park, where it's been an anchor store since the mall opened in 1976. It's one of 39 Sears stores and 64 Kmart stores deemed "unprofitable".

A spokesperson for Sears Holdings declined to say how many employees will be affected by the closings.

Sears first announced the plan back in early November, but the Indianapolis and Bloomington locations were not included.

Sears Holdings said liquidation sales will begin at locations slated to close on January 12. The majority of the jobs are part-time positions, Sears said. In a news release, company officials said the closings were part of Sears Holdings' continuing assessment of the productivity of its store base.

Shopping centers around the nation have been preparing for the departure of Sears stores as the company continues to shutter locations. Macy's and J.C. Penney have also been shuttering hundreds of stores.

Only two full-sized Sears stores remain in Alabama - one at the Riverchase Galleria and the other in Gadsden, neither of which are on the latest closure list.
