The Sears Holding Company announced Wednesday that the Kmart in Gonzales will close its doors come this March. This closure is one of 108 stores that is set to close this spring around the U.S. and one of two in Louisiana.

"Many of these stores have struggled with their financial performance for years and we have kept them open to maintain local jobs and in the hopes that they would turn around," said the company in a statement. "But in order to meet our objective of returning to profitability, we have to make tough decisions and will continue to do so, which will give our better performing stores a chance at success."

Liquidation sales will begin as early as Jan. 6 .
