Sears To Close Lakeview Square Mall Location In Battle Creek
Among 40 other stores being closed by Sears Holdings is the Battle Creek location at Lakeview Square Mall. The latest move affects 29 Sears and 11 Kmart locations, but Battle Creek is the only Michigan store closing for this round. No exact date has been given for the last day open in Battle Creek, but it is expected to close in 2019. Sears Holdings filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on October 15.
The retailer is already in the process of closing about 188 stores: 142 announced in October that will close around the end of 2018 and 46 announced in August that will close in November.
The closures are expected to leave fewer than 500 locations remaining. The company has estimated it has about 400 stores that could be profitable on their own if it survives bankruptcy.
