Coos Bay's Kmart store at 3111 Ocean Blvd. is not on a list of 79 Sears and Kmart stores slated for closure, Sears Holdings Co. announced this morning.
The only Oregon store to be closed is the Sears store in Roseburg, according to the http://searsholdings.com/about/122711_close.pdf" target= "_blank">list posted on a Sears media website.
The Sears store at Pony Village Mall in North Bend was not one of the stores being considered for closure because it is a franchise store.
Sears Holdings announced Tuesday that it plans to close 100 to 120 stores as part of a strategy of redirecting resources from its underperforming stores to better-performing ones. As it decides what stores to close, the company said it would add locations to the list of 79 released today.
