Grand Island Sears store to close
The Grand Island Sears store at Conestoga Mall is now set to close its doors.
A new list of 40 stores was released by Sears Holdings on Thursday.
The G.I. store is the only Nebraska one on the list.
"As part of Sears Holdings' processes to accelerate its strategic transformation and facilitate its financial restructuring, on November 8 the company informed associates at 40 stores that we will be closing these Sears and Kmart stores in February 2019," said a statement from the company.
It said liquidation sales at the stores are expected to begin late next week. This is in addition to the previously announced closure of 142 unprofitable stores expected to be completed near the end of the year.
The Cornhusker State has a total of 14 Sears or Sears Hometown stores, and one lone K-Mart in Alliance, according to the stores' websites.
