So in the past few days, they opened new Sears Hometown stores in Victoria (near but not in the mall) and in Willowbrook Mall (where the old Sears store was).

Could you please update Honolulu as well? The store is long gone as discussed earlier. They only have a tiny inline mattress and appliance store.
I will look to clarify it and others, since it is still technically a corporate Sears store.

Someone has posted some photos from yesterday/today inside the Miami Kmart.

Looks like all the customers and employees left, the lights are burning out, and someone forgot to lock the doors and clear out all the unsold merchandise.

Though there is a holiday display for Pepsi/Lays. I guess they paid the DSD.

Three updates:

Removed the Sears in Media, PA that closed around August '21

Key West Sears to be closing in March, not January as earlier reported: https://keysweekly.com/42/key-west-kmar ... -in-march/

Sears has announced the closing of the last full-line store in PA, at Willow Grove "In 2022": https://www.pennlive.com/news/2022/01/l ... close.html

This store is currently liquidating and will probably be gone by March at the latest. It really isn't a true full line store (Most of the 2nd floor and 3rd floor are leased out to Primark) and has had very little merchandise as it is.

Well, there's nothing in a press release, I think it's purely reliant on someone checking the Sears/Kmart job listings for Temp positions. The jobs were posted on the 10th, same day as the Key West postings and a day after Hamilton.
