Sears Bankruptcy
Early Monday morning, Sears made headlines by filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It wasn't exactly a surprising move given the beleaguered company's steady decline in sales, but it certainly paints a bleak picture for one of the most iconic names in American retail. We're taking a look at the impact of the Sears bankruptcy and what the announcement means for workers and shoppers nationwide.

The Rise and Fall of Sears

Sears Bankruptcy
Once heralded as the country's largest retailer and the biggest employer in the USA, Sears used to dominate the retail landscape with its profitable mail-order catalogs and a lucrative collection of name-brand appliances. In its heyday, the store enjoyed more than 40% of appliance sales across the globe. According to CNN, that number has changed dramatically in the last decade. (Sears' appliance sales accounted for just 3% of the market in 2017.)

Faced with an insurmountable debt of $134 million and underperforming brick-and-mortar locations, the retailer's bankruptcy includes the imminent closure of 142 Sears and Kmart stores across the U.S. in the coming months in addition to 46 other previously determined store closings. With only 687 Sears and Kmart locations across the country, it's a huge hit to the company as a whole.

As The Chicago Tribune points out, the bankruptcy filing buys Sears a little more time for a possible turnaround (albeit one that seems unlikely considering the store has lost over $11 billion dollars in the last eight years alone). Still, Sears is holding out hope that it can sell its remaining stores in order to salvage jobs. In 2016, the retailer employed 178,000 workers. Today, that number stands around 68,000 with 32,000 of those positions full-time.

What the Sears Bankruptcy Means for Consumers

Sears Bankruptcy
As part of Sears' restructuring efforts, 142 Sears and Kmart stores (part of Sears Holdings) are set to close by the end of the year. What does this mean for shoppers? Plenty of markdowns and liquidation sales, for one. The retailer plans to continue operating the remainder of its stores throughout the holiday season, so you'll still get to shop at unaffected locations as well as Sears.com during Black Friday madness.

If you have any unused Sears gift cards, you'll probably want to go ahead and redeem them, as well.

It's sad to see them go as their shop your way rewards program was pretty bomb in getting a ton of freebies over the past couple of years. That's life and business as they didn't really seem to do anything to compete with other major players in their industry and against the juggernaut known as Amazon.

Maybe they can figure something out during the transition like Toys r us and change things around during this holiday season.

Classic case of private equity driving a company into the ground while making profits for themselves.

Agree. They also lost the loyalty of the customer. Amazon is not a major player when it come to tools and appliances.

Like burn through everything including the saving today and let the TOMORROW guy starve to death? A very bad way of making a profit, very short too.

forgot the closing stores in south dakota on your list..
also if you dont/cant compete you should go, just like jc penney did in the past. i dont know how they made it here this long, sears kmart and penney's were always empty when i went there and they charged too much for items there. greed will/did kill you. they forced the stores (told by an employee) that didnt make 1mil a month to close. good for the people in a closing sale bad for people that like to shop there or working there.
closing sale netted me a 25cf Samsung for 5oo and a glass top stove for 300 out the door . saved 65% off reg price in local appliance stores. thanks sears!! hate to see you go
