Kmart stores in Broomfield and Glenwood Springs are closing, along with a Sears store in Longmont.

The three stores are on a preliminary list released Thursday by Sears Holding Corp.

So far, it looks like no Southern Colorado Sears or Kmart will be closed.

A total of 79 stores nationwide were included on the initial list. After sales were down over the holidays, the retailer announced Tuesday it would close up to 120 stores.

The 125-year-old company hasn't said when they will close.

A spokeswoman for the company says each store employs between 40 and 80 people.

Sears and Kmart merged in 2005. The company now has about 3,560 stores in the U.S.
