(BLOOMINGTON) - The Kmart store on West Third Street in Bloomington is set to close in early April.

Sears, their parent company, announced on Thursday that the store in Indianapolis on East Thompson Road is also closing.

The exact date of the closures are not known at this time.

Sears says they are closing unprofitable stores as they transform their current business model. Liquidation sales will begin as early as Jan. 12 at these closing stores.

Sears first announced the plan back to close several stores in early November, but these two stores were not included in the list.

A press release states that eligible associates impacted by these closures will receive severance and will have the opportunity apply at other Kmart and Sears stores.

Area Kmart locations remaining open are the Indianapolis store at 6780 W. Washington St., Elwood, Kokomo, Gas City and Peru.

There are Sears locations remaining open at Castleton Square Mall and in Greenwood.
