Oak Ridge, Middlesboro Sears stores on list to be closed in 2012

Posted:

OAK RIDGE (WATE) - Sears stores at Oak Ridge Mall and in Middlesboro are among 79 stores planned for closing in the coming year.

An initial list of Kmart and Sears stores scheduled for closing was published Thursday by the parent company Sears Holdings.

No other area stores are on the list, but the company said more may be added.

In all, four Tennessee Sears stores are on the current list, including a Sears store in Cleveland. Just one Kmart, in Hendersonville, is on the list of stores to be shuttered.

The Middlesboro store carries hardlines only and the Oak Ridge store sells a full line of products.

The parent company announced plans Tuesday to close 100 to 120 stores. No dates for the closings have been announced.
