One of the world’s most iconic retailers is on its deathbed.

Sears is one of America’s oldest companies. It opened its first store in 1886, five years before the zipper was invented.

The company later pioneered the mail-order catalog business. At one point, it was also the world’s biggest retailer.

Anyone could look at this chart and tell you Sears is finished.

But the company didn’t officially admit this until a few days ago. On Wednesday, Sears management shared its dire outlook in the company’s latest annual report:

In other words, management just admitted what everyone else has been saying for years.
