The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October.

The closing includes one Kmart location in IN at 11 Sherwood Square in Peru.

Liquidation sales are scheduled to begin in two weeks, the company said.

Lampert put forward a $4.6 billion proposal to buy the company out of bankruptcy through his hedge fund, ESL Investments, on December 6.

The accompanying Sears Auto Center at these Sears stores will also be closing, the release says.

Failing a successful purchase bid, Sears is facing the possibility of liquidation, ending the company's 125-year run as one of the country's best-known retailers.
