Sears to close Sheboygan Product Rebuild Center

Sears Holdings Corp. will close its Sheboygan Product Rebuild Center and lay off about 30 employees in February, according to a WARN notice filed recently with the state.

The facility, located at 3353 Kohler Memorial Drive, will close on or about Feb. 22. The affected employee titles include sales support, backroom associates, consultative sales associates and merchandise-pricing associates, among others.

The move is the latest in a series of closures Sears has announced recently. The Sears store and Sears Auto Center at Memorial Mall in Sheboygan will also close in February, eliminating 31 positions.

The company will also close its store and Auto Center at Bayshore Town Center in Glendale and the Glendale Product Rebuild Center, laying off a total of 153 employees, beginning Dec. 7.

And Sears this year also closed its store at Regency Mall in Racine.

These are just some of several stores Sears is closing as the company tries to turn around years of struggle. Sears reported a net loss of $573 million in the second quarter.
