N.M. Kmarts, Sears stores survive first closure round

New Mexico locations for Sears and Kmart stores survived the first round of closure announcements Thursday.

Sears announced plans Tuesday to close between 100 and 120 stores, and will post additional rounds of closures online.

The first round of closures named 79 locations in 25 states, including three stores in Colorado (Longmont, Glenwood Springs and Broomfield). No other state bordering New Mexico had a store in the first round of closures.

Clovis has a Sears location at Clovis’ North Plains Mall. A Big Kmart location on Prince Street was closed in 2002.
