Three Indiana Sears stores will close in early September – including the one in Lafayette’s Tippecanoe Mall.

The Sears locations in Indianapolis and Muncie were also on the list of the 63 stores that will be shutting down after Sears found them to be, in the words of a corporate press release, “non-profitable.”

The Auto Centers at those locations will be shuttered in late July.

The original list, released Thursday, named 100 troubled stores, but only slated 72 for closure. Sears then trimmed that number to 63. But the latest Sears Holdings statement says the others are being “evaluated further.”

Liquidation sales at Sears will begin as early as mid-June.
