All Sears and Kmart expected to close.

I read on CNN Money that ultimately, all Sears and Kmart will eventually close. It stated that since Sears bought Kmart in 2005, they have been on a downward spiral.

I believe it. Our sears and Kmart don't do much business.

Our Kmart already closed. Or Sears doesn't do much business.

I'm not surprised. Department stores like Sears are becoming a thing of the past and every Kmart I've ever been in has been dirty, disorganized, over priced, and an unpleasant experience. If other stores are operating like those ones, it's not a shock they'd be driving customers away.

that's a shame. We have a local sears we always go to.The local Kmart....I'm surprised that's still in business actually. Our local store is overpriced,dirty,the staff isn't reliable or knowledgeable.

The town it's in just had a college expand-so all the local businesses are booming except for that one store.

 The Kmart near my job closed over 10 years ago. It was a mess. They could not keep employees and the ones they had were not helpful. Also every summer they always had an issue with the AC.

The kmart closed by me 2 years ago, and the sears closed in March. Sears really disappointed me, I would find cute clothes for my dd's and we usually purchased our appliances there.
