Yesterday it was reported that Sears Holdings Corp. would be closing 100 to 120 "marginally performing" Sears and Kmart locations nationwide. At that time, a spokesperson from the company said that they had not yet determined which stores would be shut down. Today a Racked tipster sent along the following list (warning: PDF) of 79 condemned locations. A quick scan reveals that none are in LA, however stores in San Diego and El Monte weren't so lucky. Approximately 40 to 80 people will be laid off per store.
