After shutting down at Eastview Mall, Sears announces closure of Marketplace Mall location

The deadline for bids to keep Sears from bankruptcy is later today, but the end is near either way for the Marketplace Mall store.

Sears Holdings will close another 80 Sears and Kmart stores in late March 2019, and the Henrietta location is on the list.

The closing will mark the exit of Sears from the Rochester retail scene. The Eastview Mall location in Victor closed last month, and its store at The Mall at Greece Ridge closed in July.

The planned closures were announced only hours before the deadline for bids to keep the company out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. All bids must be submitted by 4 p.m. ET.

Should Sears not find the investment it needs, the company could be forced to liquidate some assets. Last week, for example, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Robert Drain allowed the beleaguered retailer to sell its home-improvement service business to Service.com for $60 million.
