Liquidation sales for the 68 Kmart stores that are closing, including Poughkeepsie, are scheduled to start May 12.

Sears Holdings announced in February it would "accelerate" the closings of "unprofitable stores."

"The decision to close stores is a difficult but necessary step as we take aggressive actions to strengthen our company, fund our transformation and restore Sears Holdings to profitability," Edward S. Lampert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sears Holdings, said in a statement. "We're focusing on our best members, our best categories and our best stores as we work to accelerate our transformation."
