Kmart stores in Victor and Chili are among more than a dozen locations that are set to close this year.

In a release on Thursday, Sears Holding announced it will close 28 stores across the country, including the Kmarts on Cobblestone Court Drive in Victor and Paul Road in Chili.

The stores will be closed by mid-November, the company reports, with liquidation sales beginning as soon as August 31.

Sears Holdings says the closures are part of a move to "transform our business model so that our physical store footprint and our digital capabilities match the needs and preferences of our members."

The stores are the last two Kmarts in the Rochester area. The Webster Kmart also closed earlier this year.
