It's something that's becoming all too common. It's been announced that a number of Sears and Kmart stores will be closing down, and two of the stores in Michigan have made the list. One of them is the Sears at Crossroads Mall. Announced in a press release today, the company stated:

We have made the difficult but necessary decision to close 26 large-format Sears and Kmart stores in late October. The Sears Auto Centers at any of these stores (see * below) will close in late August. Liquidation sales at these stores are expected to begin around August 15. As we promised, all eligible associates will be offered the same number of weeks of severance as offered to employees of Sears Holdings Corporation prior to that company’s Chapter 11 filing in October 2018.

The two Michigan stores listed were the following:
Sears* 6780 S Westnedge Avenue Portage MI
Sears* 4900 Fashion Square Mall Saginaw MI

Thank you to all the staff at the Crossroads location for all their hard work.
