The parent company of Kmart and Sears said in January it will shutter 150 stores. And as Sears discusses nearby store closings with local news sources, larger media companies have been compiling a list of additional closings that weren’t part of the January announcement.

Kmarts are closing their doors across Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Hawaii, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and more. Sears has announced it is closing stores in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Texas, Utah West Virginia and more.

And without their thriving tenants, malls have been hit hard by the retail woes. A June 2 report from Credit Suisse estimates 20% to 25% of American malls will close within the next five years.
