NEW YORK — Sears Holdings Corp. will be closing over 100 more stores, including one in Enola, as the struggling department store chain tries to turn around its business.

The Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based company says that includes 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears stores that will be shuttered between early March and early April.

According to ABC27 News, the Kmart in Enola’s Summerdale Plaza, the Kmart on Jonestown Road in Harrisburg and the Sears at 1155 Carlisle Street in Hanover will close, the company said in a news release. The Sears Auto Center in Hanover will close later this month.

Liquidation sales will begin as early as Jan. 12.

A Sears spokesman said Thursday the number of workers affected was not available. The majority of the jobs are part-time positions, Sears said.

The move comes in addition to closing about 250 stores announced last year.

Sears has been selling off some its real estate and brands as it tries to raise cash.

Earlier Thursday, Macy's Inc. announced it was closing 11 stores early this year.
