Which Massachusetts Kmart and Sears stores are closing?

The Sears store in the Spring Hill Mall in West Dundee is closing victim of the struggling retail chain's efforts to stay afloat

The company last month closed its only other remaining Western Massachusetts Kmart, a store in Palmer.

Those closures come as Transformco, which purchased the assets of Sears Holdings Corporation in February, "made the hard but necessary decision to streamline our operations and close 96 Sears and Kmart stores", the company announced.

Sears Holdings Corporation was purchased by Transformco in February 2019.

The chains will be left with 182 combined stores nationwide, after the new closures are completed.


The stores at 910 Wilkes-Barre Township Boulevard (Route 309) and in the Berwick Shopping Plaza are slated to shut down by February, a list released by Transformco indicated. The closing locations will have going out of business sales starting on December 2.

After this latest round of closures, Sears will have stores in Braintree, Brockton, Hanover, Marlborough, North Attleboro and Saugus, as well as appliance outlet stores in Holyoke and Fall River.

The company added it still expects "to realize a significant return on our extensive portfolio of owned and leased real estate". These assets include Innovel, which provides logistics solutions to businesses and consumers, Sears Home Services as well as Shop Your Way® and financial services, and our Kenmore® and DieHard brands.

The Sears on Winchester Road in Temecula will also close, Transformco said. That's down from roughly 425 locations earlier this year, and from as many as 2,500 stores when Sears and Kmart first merged in 2005.
