List of Sears, Kmart stores to close still being finalized

The fate of several Sears and Kmart stores in and around the Lafayette area is still unknown.

Parent company Sears Holding has not yet released a list of as many as 120 outlets it’s closing.

Ball State Economist Sue Mantel says, as far as Sears in concerned, it needs to re-brand itself as something customers can relate to, because it has an identity problem.  She says this should not be seen as the end of either company.

There are Sears outlets in Lafayette, Logansport, Lebanon, Crawfordsville and Danville, Illinois. Lafayette also has a Kmart, as does Kokomo and Danville, Illinois.
