Another bleak Hudson Valley January, another iconic brick & mortar store closing.
Sears announced today that its Kingston store, located in the Hudson Valley Mall, will close in early April. The company announced a total of 64 Kmart and 39 Sears closures.
“Sears Holdings continues its strategic assessment of the productivity of our Kmart and Sears store base
and will continue to right size our store footprint in number and size,” wrote the company in a press release.
The company said eligible workers will receive severance and have the opportunity to apply for open positions at nearby stores. (Sears locations in Poughkeepsie and Newburgh and the Kmart in Poughkeepsie were unaffected by the closures.)
The announcement follows the closure of two other anchor stores in the Hudson Valley Mall: JC Penney in 2016 and Macy’s in 2015.
