CHICAGO, IL - JULY 07: A worker holds a sign announcing a store-closing sale outside the 60-year-old Sears store in the Galewood neighborhood on July 7, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. When the store closes, only one Sears store will remain in Chicago, the home of the company's first store and former headquarters of the retail giant. Today Sears Holdings, the parent company of Sears and Kmart announced it would be closing another 43 stores beyond those previously scheduled for closing. The closings will bring Sears' store count to nearly half of what it was five years ago. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
