MORE: Sears CEO gives rare interview: ‘We’re fighting to survive’
The Tri-County Mall store’s closure was not included last week on the list of 72 more Sears locations closing nationwide this year. The only Ohio locations included on that list were Lima and Strongville.
The news came one day after the Illinois-based company, which owns Sears and Kmart, announced a $424 million first-quarter loss.
The new round of closures doesn’t come as a surprise, as Sears reported yet another disappointing quarterly earnings. Eddie Lampert, CEO and chairman of Sears Holding Corp., told Vanity Fair earlier this year that the retailer was “fighting to survive.”
We’ve reached out to Sears corporate offices to ask how many associates will be affected by the closing.
