Auto Centers Closing as Part of Sears Reduction

At least 30 Sears Auto Centers will be among those locations closed as part of Sears Holding Corp.'s plan to close as many as 120 of its retail stores.

At least 30 Sears Auto Centers will be among those locations closed as part of Sears Holding Corp.’s plan to close as many as 120 of its retail stores.

The reeling retailer announced before the holidays that it would close from 120 to 140 Sears and Kmart stores in an effort to reduce costs.

Sears Holding has already announced 79 specific stores that will be closed, and among that group are 27 locations with Sears Auto Centers. More of those centers will surely be among the 40-60 more stores Sears Holding will close.

Prior to the closings, Sears operated 768 auto centers at 842 of its full-line Sears stores.
