Help Save After Prom



The Kmart store on Franklin Road in Roanoke will close by early October. It is one of 43 Kmart and Sears stores nationwide included in the latest of several rounds of such closures this year — more than 300 in all. The company that owns both chains says going-out-of-business sales could begin as early as next Thursday.

NEW YORK (AP) _ Struggling department store chain Sears says it’s closing even more stores as it tries to turn around its business. Sears Holdings Corp. CEO Eddie Lampert said in a blog post Friday that the company would close another eight Sears and 35 Kmart stores that are unprofitable by early October. Hundreds of store closings have already been announced this year. Sears had said in March that there was “substantial doubt” it could continue after years of bleeding money, though it has insisted that its actions to turn around its business should help reduce that risk. With more people shopping online, mall foot traffic has dropped.
