A dead Gordmans is coming back to life

But a Sears is closing at the same Minnesota mall.

Things are changing at Burnsville Center.

As expected, Sears Holdings is closing more stores across the country, including its Sears store at Burnsville Center, Business Insider reports. This isn't much of a surprise as the company, which owns both Sears and Kmart, has been struggling in the changing retail industry.

The Burnsville Center store will close in mid-September, while the Sears Auto Center at the mall will close in late July, the Business Journal reports.

A Gordmans is coming back

But there's some good news for the mall. It turns out the Gordmans store that closed at Burnsville Center will actually be reopening. The discount retail chain said in April that it would be closing five stores in Minnesota, with just the Woodbury location staying open.

Now it looks like two will remain, with the owner of Burnsville Center telling the Star Tribune Gordmans will reopen in the same location on June 29.

And indeed on the Gordmans website, it lists four locations as "permanently closed" – but the Burnsville Center one is labeled only as "closed now."

The company that owns Gordmans told the paper it has no plans to reopen any other Gordmans locations in the state, though.

Retailer trouble

Sears and Gordmans are some of the retailers that have been dealing with definite or possible store closures, as consumers shift their shopping online. Others are:
