2 Kmart Stores, 1 Sears Store Closing In Colorado

DENVER (AP) — Kmart stores in Broomfield and Glenwood Springs are closing, along with a Sears store in Longmont.

The three stores are on a preliminary list released Thursday by Sears Holding Corp.

A total of 79 stores nationwide were included on the initial list. The retailer announced Tuesday it would close up to 120 stores.

The 125-year-old company hasn’t said when they will close.

A spokeswoman for the company says each store employs between 40 and 80 people.

Sears and Kmart merged in 2005. The company now has about 3,560 stores in the U.S.
