In November 2017, Sears Holding announced it will close 18 Sears stores and 45 Kmart locations, including the last Kmart store in Alabama. The entire department store sector is suffering as internet sales intensify. There are about 40 employees, made up of full-time and part-time positions, who will be affected.

In 2006, Sears Holdings operated more than 3,000 locations in the US and Canada, according to CNN.

Affiliated Sears stores, under non-company ownership, closed in Newark and Christiana.
