COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Sears in Colonie Center is shutting its doors.

Sears said the store will remain open until mid-September. Liquidation sales begin on June 30.

Sears also announced a number of other stores in the United States and Canada will also be closing on top of the 245 closings that had already been announced this year.

The once-giant retailer is struggling to grow its sales in the age of online shopping.

No word on how many employees will be affected.

Associates that are eligible will receive severance and have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores.
