Retail Spring Cleaning By 5 Largest Chains Going Out of Business Sales

In what might seem like a staged collaboration, some of the largest U.S. retail chains are using a controversial retail strategy to motivate consumer spending in April and counteract the effects of an uncommonly early March Easter.  That controversial retail strategy is called "store closings," which is the one retail event besides Black Friday that has an irresistible magnetic power to both  draw shoppers through the front door and .pry their wallets wide open.

Macy's, JCPenney, Sports Authority, Jos. A. Bank, Sears, and Kmart will all be conducting Going Out of Business Sales in April 2016, and hundreds of retail locations for these chains will close their brick-and-mortar retail store doors for the last time in April 2016.  

What follows in this gallery is an aggregated  list of all Spring 2016 store closings, arranged according to store closing dates, with the earliest store closing date listed first.

Kmart has been closing stores steadily since April of 2015, which is actually a sign of at least some stability in the discount chain. Unlike a chain such as Sports Authority, which needs to expedite stores quickly as part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the Kmart store closings are seemingly happening as leases come up for renewal.  

Oddly the Kmart store closing strategy is a testament to the relative stability afforded to the chain by its parent company Sears Holdings. The key word in that sentence may be "relative." 

Kmart isn't the only major retail chain closing store locations in March. It just happens to be the chain that routinely steals the headlines. What follows is a list of all retail stores scheduled to close in March 2016. The list is arranged by store closing date, with the earliest date listed first.

An early Easter is neither predictably good or bad for the U.S. retail industry, but one thing is for sure, when Easter falls in March (like it did in 2016), it's a long Spring Break for retailers before Mother's Day. And we're not talking about the life's-a-party kind of Spring Break.  

The major retailers that have chosen April for their final closing liquidation sales have created a way to transform an inordinately long spending drought between Easter and Mother's Day into a plausible excuse for consumers to keep spending.

What follows is a list of all retail stores scheduled to close in April 2016.  The list is arranged by store closing date, with the earliest date listed first.

Other national retail chains like Staples and Hallmark continue their slow and steady downsizing efforts with final store closings in June.  

    Additionally, the first of the Sports Authority bankruptcy Going Out of Business Sales will be ending in June, starting a busy Summer season of retail store closings throughout the U.S.  Sports Authority shoppers have until June 28, 2016 to redeem gift cards.
