The international superstore chain K-Mart today made a deal with department store chain Sears to sell off 54 of their stores.

DETROIT - As Kmart Holding Corp. announced the second deal in less than a month to sell off dozens of stores, observers wondered whether chairman and majority owner Edward Lampert intends to revive the company's ailing retail business, or gradually sell it off, capitalizing on its vast real estate holdings.

This comes just weeks after K-Mart made a deal with the major hardware chain Home Depot. Together, selling off 78 stores, K-Mart will make just shy of 1-billion dollars; a mere 986-million dollars.
