KMart closing in Rutland in early April

Sears Holding announced on Thursday that an additional 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears stores will be closed for good.

A liquidation sale at the Springfield store, at the north end of The Shoppes, could begin as soon as January 12, the company said.

However, a statement from the company says, "Eligible associates will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores".

Sears Holdings Corp. will be closing over 100 more stores as the struggling department store chain tries to turn around its business. The Sears news came on the same day Macy's announced store closings and job cutbacks. Sears relaunched its Wish Book catalog online late previous year.

Spotify's Chief Content Officer Leaves Ahead Of Planned Public Offering
Spotify's top content executive is leaving, just ahead of the streaming music company's planned public offering . His departure comes as Spotify gears up for a public listing, for which it filed paperwork in December.

Sears stock closed at $3.58, down 18 cents or 4.79%, on Thursday.

While closing a store is always a hard decision because of the impact on our customers, our associates and the community, Macy's is delighted to have served this community over the years.

Sears has been selling off some its real estate and brands as it tries to raise cash.

The Kmart in Salisbury, Maryland, is one of the locations that will also close in early April and so, too, are 10 Kmart sites in Pennsylvania. The trust bailed out Sears Holdings by buying 266 Sears and Kmart stores for $2.7 billion.

Reforms are yielding results, says Debroy on GDP estimate
The disruption introduced by the implementation of Goods and Services Tax is expected to take a major toll on the sector. This may affect the fiscal deficit, which the government had hoped to cap at Rs 5.46 lakh crore this year.

Sears had already been planning to downsize in Orland Park, where it's been an anchor store since the mall opened in 1976.

Sue Gill, 58, of Beachwood, N.J., about a mile from Toms River, said she will miss the Sears there, where she shops at least once a month.

"It's definitely the online shopping", she said.
