    Philly's Third Restaurant Renaissance Has Arrived
    Starr, Vetri, Garces, Solomonov. The founding fathers of our restaurant revival have either cashed out, moved on or lost their mojo. Where does that leave Philly? Maybe with our best food yet. Food writers in Philadelphia go through what I like to call the "12 Steps of Stephen Starr."

Two more Sears and a Kmart to close in Philly and at the Shore

The closures — which come on top of the 350 Sears and Kmarts closed last year — are expected between early March and April of this year with liquidation sales to start as early as next Friday, Jan. 12, at some locations. The entire department store sector is suffering as internet sales intensify.

Seritage’s growth strategy is based on taking space away from Sears. The trust bailed out Sears Holdings by buying 266 Sears and Kmart stores for $2.7 billion. Seritage gets 78 percent of its rent from Sears Holdings, which occupies all but 11 of the stores.

This article has 2 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

The list consists of 64 Kmart stores and 39 Sears stores — including the Sears at 7300 Bustleton Ave. in Northeast Philly and one at the Ocean County Mall in Toms River, N.J. Also on the chopping block is a Kmart on 3301 Aramingo Ave., in Port Richmond.
