While the Greater Lehigh Valley took some hits during Sears Holdings Inc.’s earlier closings of Kmart stores, it seems to have been spared in the latest round of closures.

Sears Holdings is the parent company of both Sears and Kmart retail stores.

The company has released a new list of 103 Sears and Kmart stores it will be closing by this spring, 10 Kmart stores closing are in Pennsylvania and three Sears.

None are in the Greater Lehigh Valley.

During the most recent closings, the company shuttered Kmarts in Whitehall and South Whitehall Townships.

Kmart stores remain open in Allentown, Doylestown, Shillington, Wilson, Walnutport and Wind Gap.

There are Sears stores in Whitehall, Reading, Stroudsburg and Phillipsburg.

Here is a list of the latest Sears and Kmart store closings.
