5 North Carolina Sears and Kmart stores to close in March


Sears and Kmart stores in North Carolina will close their doors in March as part of the parent company’s restructuring plans, Sears Holdings Corp. said this week.

The five stores are on a list of 80 Sears and Kmart stores slated for closure in late March, according to the company, which filed for bankruptcy in October.

The Sears stores’ locations are:

– 1620 Guess Road in Durham.

– The Streets of Southpoint in Durham.

The Kmart stores’ locations are:

– 980 Brevard Road in Asheville.

– 110 / 112 Bost Road in Morganton.

– 4841 Arendell St. in Morehead City.

“As part of Sears Holdings’ processes to accelerate its strategic transformation and facilitate its financial restructuring, on December 27, 2018, the company informed associates at 80 stores that we will be closing these Sears and Kmart stores …” Sears Holdings said in a press release.

The Sears Auto Centers at Sears locations will also close, and the company expects to begin the liquidation process in about two weeks.

Sears Holdings previously said that the shuttering of 40 other unprofitable stores would be completed by February. In total, the company has targeted 262 of its approximately 700 stores for closure since it announced it would file for bankruptcy.
