business news in context, analysis with attitude

Kmart announced yesterday that about 400 of its 1,480 stores will be rebranded as Sears once its $11 billion merger with that retailer is finalized.

The conversions are expected to take about three years.

Details about what kinds of Kmart stores will be converted were not available.
