Sears and Kmart stores in Chillicothe avoid the list of those closing in Ohio
(AP) A preliminary list of Sears and Kmart locations that are closing shows that Ohio is losing six stores, but none in Chillicothe. Both stores have been spared in Ohio's first capital.
Stores that are closing include two Kmarts in the Cleveland area, two Kmarts in Toledo; a Kmart in Columbus; and a Kmart in Springfield.
Eleven stores will be shuttered in Florida, the state that will be hit hardest by the closures.
A spokeswoman for Sears Holding Corporation says each store employs between 40 and 80 people.
The 125-year-old retailer said on Tuesday it would close up to 120 stores to raise cash.
The projected closings represent only about 3 percent of Sears Holdings' U.S. stores.
