Yesterday, Sears announced that it’s closing 109 of its Kmart stores and 41 of the eponymous Sears outlets. The news is a blow for the retails chain and its employees, who are losing a slow battle against the dominance of online retail.

But for some people, a store closing down only means one thing: liquidation sales. According to the announcement yesterday, sales will start at affected stores today, with the outlets expected to be shuttered in the next few months.

Sears CEO Eddie Lampert described the move as “taking strong, decisive actions…to stabilize the company and improve our financial flexibility in what remains a challenging retail environment.” The strategy is to close down stores that are losing money and focus on the company’s remaining profit-generating stores. Sears also sold off its Craftsman tool brand to Stanley Black & Decker yesterday, although Craftsman tools should remain available for purchase in Sears stores for years to come.
