A pretty good number of Kmarts have started to close at 8 PM weeknights and earlier on weekends/Sundays. Based on the locations around me that are on this 8 PM closing program, they are obviously the lower volume and more poorly performing stores. The writing is probably on the wall. And it is a shame. But they are probably lucky they stayed open this long, really. Have to give them some credit for holding it together as long as they have.
Sears is a disaster. Clueless on retail operations.
When you continue to do the same things the same way, why should you expect the results to change? Typical of years past, Eddie will drive up the stock prices with his bag of tricks just in time for the end of the fiscal year the end of January 2013. Then you are on your own.
