Albany Sears among several to close nationwide

Albany Sears among several to close nationwide

(RNN) - Sears and Kmart plan to shutter more than 30 stores in early 2017.

The Albany Sears and Auto Center is on that list.

The two merged under the same holding company in 2005 but have continued to struggle financially. The stores are expected to close in either March or April and will begin liquidation sales in Jan. 6, according to Business Insider.

Of the stores expected to close, 24 will be Kmart and nine will be Sears. Most of the closings will be in Florida, Kentucky, West Virginia and New York.

CBS reported Sears' stock price has declined 60 percent, despite the overall market hitting a record high. It also said the store chain has lost more than $9 billion and missed its self-stated goal for profitability.

Business Insider confirmed a list of stores that were closing in 2017. The plans follow the closure of 68 Kmarts and 10 Sears locations in 2016, leaving them with fewer than 900 and 700 locations respectively, Fortune reported.
