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.

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.

They said the former MI6 officer may have made false statements about "the distribution of claims contained in the dossier". The dossier was turned over to the FBI in 2016, and federal investigators worked to corroborate portions of it.

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.
