Sales at Sears (SHLD) lag its major competitors, and many of the company’s 2,200 Sears and Kmart stores are run-down and in undesirable locations, according to a NYT profile. Many stores are in older malls, and Sears has invested much less in store improvements than Macy’s (M), Target (TGT), Wal-Mart (WMT) or J. C. Penney (JCP).
