Remember when we found out that Sears was closing down their stores in Shreveport, Bossier, and Monroe? it all happened so quickly before we knew it the stores were shut down. Many folks in the area commented with the fact that the Sears department store in Longview still remained. Sears Holding reported on Thursday that they will close 39 Sears and Kmart stores in the country and the Sears in Longview made the list. This is all apart of Sears Holding's "strategic transformation and facilitate its financial restructuring" We can expect liquidation sales to start sometime in late January. Sears in Longview is expected to close in February 2019.
