The company, which took over the national brands after bankruptcy, announced Friday it would close 51 Sears locations and 45 Kmart stores by early next year, according to an AJC report. Liquidation sales start Dec. 2, a few days after Black Friday and Thanksgiving sales begin, USA Today reported.

There are no additional Kmart stores closing their doors in Georgia in this round of closings, but there is one Sears location that will shutter its business. The Sears store at 6850 Douglas Blvd., Douglasville, will close next year.

Almost 100 Sears and Kmart stores will be closed by the end of February.
