The statement says that eligible employees working at the stores listed in Thursday's announcement will receive severance and be given the opportunity to apply for open positions at nearby Kmart or Sears stores.
Further details about the local Kmart store closing were not available Thursday afternoon.
Kmart stores in Henderson and Glasgow will also close at that time, according to the company.
Sears said the stores to be closed were losing money and the move was needed to "right size" the company.
The statement adds that the stores will remain open during the holiday season. After January, the only Kmart within 50 miles of Toledo will be in Fostoria.
Sears Holdings Corp. on Thursday told employees at 18 Sears stores and 45 Kmart stores nationwide - including five stores in OH - that their stores will be closing after the holiday season, in late January 2018.
This development is the latest in a long line of closings for Sears Holdings.
Liquidation sales at the stores that are closing are expected to begin on November 9.
Bad news has been bearing down on Sears for some years, though CEO Edward Lampert continues to lend the business one lifeline after another.
Just last month, the Lexington Kmart closed.
Sears' financial position has gotten it in hot water with its vendors in the past year, many scaling back on their business with the retailer for fear of bad deals.
Sears Holdings stock was down almost 5 percent to $5.17 at close of trading Friday.
