  • A sign announcing the store will be closing hangs above a Sears store

On Friday, Sears Holdings continued its move to consolidate its holdings by announcing the closing of 64 Kmart and 39 Sears stores.

Cathy Burwell, president and CEO of the Helena Area Chamber of Commerce, said many national chains are being forced to scale back their operations, but that Sears and J.C. Penney were in particularly hard situations. In early July it was announced that the Kenosha Sears store would be closing, and it did shutter its doors by October. However, she said Helena's unemployment rate is now very low, so Kmart employees may have an easier time finding another job.

The first stores will close in early March.

"Seeing this place close is like seeing a part of my childhood go away too because when I was little we used to shop in Kmart, so it's just sad", she said.

Sears Holdings said they are continuing to match their physical store footprint with their digital capabilities.

The company announced nationwide it would be closing 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears stores and would begin liquidation sales nearly immediately.
