Sears Canada will close 20 of its full-line stores, 15 Sears Home Stores, 10 outlet stores and 14 Sears Hometown locations.

The Sears logo is seen on the side of a store March 24, 2005 in San Bruno, California.

The fate of the store has been up in the air for several months after Seritage Growth Properties went before the Watchung Planning Board on May 16 with a plan to demolish both the retail store and the adjacent Sears Auto Center.

"We understand that members may be disappointed when we close a store, but our Shop Your Way membership platform, websites and mobile apps allow us to maintain these valued relationships long after a store closes its doors", the company said.

The stores in Mentor and Middleburg Heights will close in mid-September, a Sears spokesman told FOX 8 News on Friday. RadioShack, Gymboree, Rue21 and Payless Shoes have all filed this year, and other retailers already in bankruptcy, such as The Limited, have closed all their stores. There have been about 5,300 store closing announcements so far this year, according to Fung Global Retail & Technology, a retail think tank.

Sears Canada received court protection from creditors on Thursday and announced a plan to close 59 locations and cut 2,900 jobs.

Sears is hardly the only retailer shuttering locations.

The number of affected employees was not publicly available.

In 2015, Sears Holdings Corp. sold 235 Sears and Kmart store locations to Seritage as part of an agreement in which Sears leases the stores back from the real estate company.
