Sears in Jackson, Columbus, and McComb on list of stores closing

Sears has released the list of stores it will be closing in coming months and three Mississippi stores, including the one at the Metrocenter, are on that list.

Stores in Columbus and McComb are also on the list.

The list was posted on a Sears website today, and lists 79 of the 100-120 stores closing. Both Sears stores and K-Marts are on that list.

Sears announced last week that it would be closing the about 100 stores after a disastrous holiday shopping season.

Sears stock dropped 27% when the announcement was made December 27th.
