Sears will idle about 55 workers at a parts and repair center at 5001 N. Beach St. just south of Northeast Loop 820, the retailer said in a notice to the state.

It said the layoffs will happen by the end of June and are expected to be permanent.

In an email statement, Sears said the facility will remain open. It said eligible workers will receive severance and can apply for open positions in Sears or Kmart stores.
