Sears closing 103 stores, including three in Central Pa.

Struggling retailer Sears Holdings is closing another 103 stores as it continues to try to reconfigure its store footprint amid poor sales.

The latest closings, announced Thursday, will impact most stores by early April. It includes two Kmart stores in Cumberland and Dauphin counties and a Sears store in York County.

The 103 closings overall include 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears stores. That includes 10 Pennsylvania Kmart stores and three Sears stores. 

The three local stores are:

  • The Kmart off Routes 11/15  in East Pennsboro Township
  • The Kmart off Jonestown Road in Lower Paxton Township
  • The Sears off Carlisle Street in Hanover.

All three are slated for early April closings, according to Sears. Some other stores are slated to close by mid-March, the company said in a news release.

Sears closed nearly 400 stores last year.
