-- 25 Sears "full-line" locations are listed.
Three Colorado Sears and Kmart stores will close in the coming year due to lackluster sales. The move could impact as many as 240 employees.
Despite Tuesday’s announcement by Sears Holdings that they will soon close up to 120 stores nationwide, the trade group Colorado Retail Council says it expects holiday sales to increase about 3 percent compared to the same time last year.
