Sears to close Grand Island location

The days are numbered for the Sears store in La Cumbre Plaza in Santa Barbara.

Kmart's Avondale store - its last location within Chicago's city limits - is one of 40 stores Sears will close as the company goes through bankruptcy.

The company filed for bankruptcy protection in October after years of closing stores and selling off assets following crippling sales declines.

Sales at the 40 newly targeted stores will begin next week, the company said. According to Business Insider, by February 2019, when the latest Sears store closures will be completed, there will be only about 500 Sears and Kmart stores still in business.

Trump had central role in hush money payments to women
Neither the White House nor Rudy Giuliani, Trump's lawyer, immediately responded to a request for comment from Business Insider. Cohen told prosecutors that as Trump discussed the payment to Daniels, he told him, "Get it done", the newspaper reported .

Fewer than 90,000 people still worked for Sears Holdings earlier this year, down from 350,000 in decades past.

The Waterville Kmart is the latest victim of Sears Holdings' store closures as the former retail giant tries to reorganize and stay afloat.

Officials at La Cumbre Plaza could not immediately be reached for comment about the closure.
