This week, former retail powerhouse Sears filed for bankruptcy protection due to a $134 million debt payment that the company wasn’t able to pay off. Sears management is planning on continuing to operate roughly 500 locations as well as the online site Sears.com during the bankruptcy process.

At the time of the filing, Sears has about 700 Sears & KMart stores still in operation. It plans to close 46 locations (previously announced) by November and is planning to close an additional 142 locations before the end of the year (likely operating the stores through the holiday season).

This is already down from 1000 stores still in operation earlier this year. The company currently has 68,000 employees, 32,000 of whom are full-time. That’s down from 89,000 employees as of Feb 2018 and down from 178,000 employees as of Jan 2016.

Company management is going to attempt to look for a buyer during this process. If a buyer isn’t found, Sears may take the path of other retail brands like  Toys R Us, RadioShack and Sports Authority.

Be aware that Sears may pursue a more aggressive sales strategy for the holiday season. Sears is in need of a robust holiday season after sales fell sharply at both Sears and KMart locations during Q4 2017. Watch for promotions with “Shop My Way” points as well as increased discounts. Of course, we will post the latest Sears deals on Ben’s here.
