Sears and Kmart released their lists of stores to be closed -- and three in Kentucky are on it.
A Sears in Middlesboro, a Kmart in Hazard, and a Kmart in Winchester will all close up shop. It's not clear yet when. And the company says since each store has a different number of employees, it's not clear how many jobs will be affected.
About 100 to 120 stores are closing nationwide, in an effort to save money. Sears and Kmart each had sluggish sales during the holiday season.
