46 More Kmarts, Sears Closing This Year

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 23, 2018

Over the last few years we've been tracking the slow decline of Kmart and Sears, two former titans of retail that have outlasted Toys R Us and numerous other retail behemoths.  Today 46 more stores were announced to be getting the axe, and you can read the list of them here.  

It's been a fascinating year for toys, where a once-unstoppable monster like Toys R Us went from crushing numerous regional competitors to being closed forever in the USA, and mere months later the long-dormant Mego Corp action figure line is back, and at Target, and cheap.   Things keep changing, but remain unpredictable as we move into an increasingly unstable future in the world of toys.
