Could Bel Air Sears Be Among Up To 120 To Close?

Sears Holding Corp. announced it will close up to 120 Sears and Kmart stores.

After a poor holiday season, Sears Holding Corp. announced Tuesday it will close between 100 and 120 Sears and Kmart Stores, according an article in the Wall Street Journal online.

Sears Holding has not announced which stores will close, but is expected to post the list on its website once the company makes those decisions, according to Yahoo Finance.

"While our past practice has been to keep marginally performing stores open while we worked to improve their performance, we no longer believe that to be the appropriate action in this environment," the company said in a statement that appeared the Wall Street Journal article.

Sears has not said how many employees will be impacted, the WSJ article said.

I can't see Harford Mall letting an anchor store like Sears close down. I'm sure our Bel Air Sears is safe and sound, especially since I just got a notice in my e-mail yesterday that the Bel Air Sears has put out an ad in the Aegis that they are hiring. I'd love to know how to even give me the time of DAY in hhgreg....the place where I feel like i get harassed is Staples! As far as good service...I think Home Depot has the best customer service in Bel Air!!

Still work fine for me, most still have a Lifetime warranty. I'm not a professional mechanic nor contractor.. I don't need Snap-On or Matco. Heck, I even use Harbor Freight. Point is Sears has stuff that other department stores don't.. I can't find an air compressor at Macys...

Harford Mall has no control if a tenant wants to leave when the lease runs out... what do you think happened to Montgomery Ward, Woolworth, Gap, Hutzlers... That being said I do agree I think this Sears is Ok though.

The Bel Air Sears is NOT on the initial Store closing list. When I asked a manager today, they said they were one of the better performing stores in the region.

The only Sears in MD closing is the one in Ellicott City.
