The decline for Sears stores continue as the location at the Greece Ridge Mall is closing.

A report from Business Insider reported that the Greece Ridge Mall location was one of at least 21 Sears stores that the company plans to shut down. The report also stated two Kmart stores will close.

WXXI News reached out to Wilmorite, owner of the Greece Ridge Mall regarding the closing, but our attempts have been unsuccessful. A WARN notice on the New York State Department of Labor website confirms that the employees at the store have been notified that the store will close in July. The notice also says 50 store employees, and another nine in the Sears Auto Center, will be affected by the closings.
