"We have made the hard but necessary decision to streamline our operations and close 96 Sears and Kmart stores", said Transformco in a news release.

Sears Holdings Corporation was purchased by Transformco in February 2019.

Going-out-of-business sales are slated to begin on December 2, according to a release from the company.

The company announced on Thursday, Nov. 7, the "difficult but necessary decision to streamline" operations by closing 96 Sears and Kmart stores, including a Kmart in Waterford and a Sears in Lansing.

Following the closures in Warren and Waterford, there will only be one Kmart store in MI, located in Marshal. "We will continue to evaluate our Sears and Kmart footprint, consistent with our overall retail and service strategy", the company said, hinting at the possibility of additional closures in the future.

At one point Kmart had 134 locations in MI.

Transformco's assets include Innovel, which provides logistics solutions to businesses and consumers; Sears Home Services; Shop Your Way; and the Kenmore and Diehard brands. The company also recently snapped up Sears Hometown, a network of more than 400 independently-owned, dealer-managed smaller-format stores that specialize in home products including appliances, lawn and garden, tools and sporting goods.

The company encourages shoppers to use the store locator function on their websites to find the closest Sears or Kmart location.
