COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Sears and Kmart are expected to close more than 70 stores by this fall.  

"Business Insider" reports the closures include stores at the Eastland and Westland Malls.

A round of closures earlier this year included four central Ohio Kmarts and two Sears stores.

Last month, Sears reported its first quarterly profit in more than two years.

The profit was attributed to the sale of the Craftsman brand to competitor Stanley Black and Decker.
