It's been a rough start to the year for Sears and Kmart employees across the country who have been hit with announcements on store closings.  Now comes news that a total of 150 stores will close by the end of March.

While it's not great news nationwide, it appears that the Sears store in the Miller Hill Mall, the Sears Hometown Store in Superior, and the Kmart in West Duluth will remain open.

The Kmart in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota and in Platteville and Racine, Wisconsin are on the list – along with the Sears in Coon Rapids and Mankato, Minnesota
