Sears at the Galleria Mall in Centerville closing in early April

Kmart store to close in April

The statement said the Kmart stores will close between early March and early April.

Sears at the Galleria Mall in Centerville is closing in early April as part of a nationwide reduction.

Liquidation sales at the stores being closed will begin next Friday, Jan. 12.

Sears said it notified employees Thursday and the company will offer severance to eligible employees.

Area Kmart locations remaining open are the Indianapolis store at 6780 W. Washington St., Elwood, Kokomo, Gas City and Peru.

Sears wasn't the only department store to announce closings Thursday. And the Hanover Sears store is located at 1155 Carlisle Street.


The latest store closings include Kmarts in Crossville, Goodlettsville and Greeneville, Tenn., and in Statesboro, Albany and Jesup, Ga., and a Sears store in Centerville, Ga. Sears recently unveiled plans to pay $407 million into its pension plan to enable the sale of 140 other properties but didn't give specifics.

Macy's shared this information with store associates earlier today because they are important to our organization and we wanted to make sure they heard about this change from the company.

The Sears store, along with J.C. Penney have anchored the outdoor shopping center for decades.

Another bleak Hudson Valley January, another iconic brick & mortar store closing.

Last fall, Seritage announced it would turn a portion of the store into a 45,000-square-foot AMC movie theater.

"Kmart's business model has not probably adapted to fulfill the opportunities that lay underneath its umbrella", said the mayor.
