TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Sears Holdings Corp. plans to close its store in Topeka as part of a nationwide reorganization.

The store is expected to close in September.

That will leave the Wichita store as the only remaining traditional Sears store in Kansas.

The Chicago-based company announced Thursday that it plans to close 57 Sears department and specialty stores, and 15 Kmarts.

Those closings will leave Sears with about 800 stores, down from a peak of 4,000 stores in 2012.
