Sears retail stores has filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and the company is in the process of closing 142 Sears and Kmart outlets in addition to the 220 stores already closed this year. For now, 687 stores will remain open.

However, since 2004, the store’s headcount has been slashed in half to 90,000 and Sears’ annual revenue has dwindled to $16.7 billion after store closures and shopper defections to rivals such as Target and Walmart, reports
