BOSTON (CBS) – Two outlet stores in New Hampshire are among the first 79 Sears and Kmart stores to close after lower-than-expected holiday sales.
“Grant/Essentials” Sears stores in Nashua and Keene will close at some point, the company announced Thursday.
Sears didn’t list the number of employees that would be affected, but did say each store set to close employs between 40 and 80 people.
No Massachusetts stores were included in the first round of store cuts.
Sears plans to close 21-41 more stores nationwide.
