Sears in Crestwood Court to close

Originally published on Thu December 29, 2011 3:20 pm

 

The Sears in Crestwood Court will be among the 100 to 120 stores the company is closing following disappointing holiday sales.

The company released a list Thursday of 79 Sears and Kmart stores to be shuttered across the country.

The company announced the closings Tuesday. It provided no timeframe.

No Kmart stores will be closed in Missouri. The only other Sears to close in the state is in Lee’s Summit.

All Sears and Kmart stores in Illinois will also remain open for now.

The state of Illinois just approved tax breaks worth an estimated $150 million to help keep Sears headquartered in suburban Chicago.
