Georgia loses six Sears, KMart stores

Say goodbye to six Sears and KMart stores throughout Georgia to welcome 2012.  They're among the 79 stores that the Sears Holding Corporation plans to close as a result of poor sales during the recently completed Christmas holiday shopping season.  Of the six stores in the Peach State that are targeted for closure, five of them are KMart's, while one Sears store in Macon will close its doors for good.  The Chicago-based corporations eventually plans to close up to 120 establishments.
