LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  The Sears department store at Green Tree Mall in Clarksville, Ind. will close in October as part of 43 Sears and Kmart closures announced Friday by parent company Sears Holdings Corp.

The auto center at the Clarksville store, 757 East Lewis & Clark Parkway, closed May 31.

The Kmart stores at 2520 Nicholasville Road in Lexington and at 2760 Frederica Street in Owensboro are also among the announced closures.

Liquidation sales will begin at the stores as soon as July 13, Sears Holdings said.

The retailer, which has been struggling to adapt as shopping migrates to e-commerce, closed all five of its Louisville-area Kmart locations last year and earlier this year.

“Changes in consumer behavior are driving our vision and actions, and we continue to transform our business model so that our physical store footprint and our digital capabilities match the needs and preferences of our members,” said Eddie Lampert, CEO of Sears Holdings, in a blog post Friday.

Sears still has stores at the Jefferson and Oxmoor malls in Louisville, as well as a home appliances outlet at 10520 Westport Road.
