SPRINGFIELD — For now, Sears stores in the Eastfield and Holyoke malls and Kmarts in Holyoke and Palmer are spared from closing, according to a list published by parent company Sears Holdings on Thursday.
But Sears does plan to shut down the Sears store in the Berkshire Mall, located a few miles north of Pittsfield in Lanesborough, by the end of January 2018.
The Sears outlet in Holyoke will also remain. An independently owned Sears Hometown store on Route 9 in Hadley is for sale.
Sears Holdings released a list of 45 Kmart stores and 18 Sears stores that will be close in in late January 2018. None besides the Berkshires store are in Massachusetts or Connecticut.
Sears had already shut down Kmarts in Great Barrington, Fitchburg and in the Springfield Plaza on Liberty Street in the past two years.
Department stores have found it increasingly difficult to compete with online shopping and with big-box discounters.
In Springfield, the owners of the Eastfield Mall bought the former Macy’s store building there last month for $1 million as they consolidate ownership in preparation to “de-mall” the property and redevelop it into standalone retail and mixed-use office and residential space.
At Eastfield, only the Sears Auto Center and few adjoining parcels are owned by Sears and not the owners of the mall, Mountain Development. Those Sears parcels are the last remaining ones not owned by Mountain Development.
The Lanesborough store will remain open through the holidays, with a liquidation sale beginning Nov. 9.
