>> UPDATED FOR 2014: Complete List of 2014 Store Closings >>

As the calendar changed to the year 2013, news of store closings by the largest U.S. retail industry chains were small in comparison to the number of store closings that had already been announced shortly after the 2012 New Year. No news is good news when it comes to 2013 store closings, particularly after disappointing Christmas retail season results.

At the beginning of 2012, Sears Holidngs was announcing the closing of 100 - 120 of its Sears and Kmart stores. Things haven’t turned around much for Sears or Kmart in 2012, and it would be no surprise if the chain announced even more store closings in 2013. Additionally, other retail chains that have been struggling like jcpenney, Blockbuster, Abercrombie & Fitch, and PacSun are expected to do some kind of downsizing in 2013, in alignment with their diminishing sales and dwindling customer base.

What follows is a complete, updated, and ongoing list of U.S. retail chains that are closing underperforming retail locations, downsizing, or going out of business in the 2013 calendar year.
