2021 Could Be Last Holiday Season For Sears, KMart
There were 3,500 stores across the U.S. when the chains merged in 2005.

Analysts say this may be the final Black Friday for Sears and KMart.

When the chains merged in 2005, there were 3,500 stores across the country. 

Sixteen years later, there are 21 full-line Sears stores and just six KMart stores. 

It's not the only chain that is hurting. Lord and Taylor folded during the pandemic and J.C. Penney declared bankruptcy.
