Sears is closing another 10 stores, on top of the 68 closings the company recently announced.
The new list, which the company posted on Friday, includes Sears stores in California, Florida, Michigan, New York, Oklahoma, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Closing sales will begin in July, and the stores will close by September.
Sears is closing more stores as the company’s sales continue to slide, with revenue falling in the most recent quarter by more than 30%, to $US2.9 billion, from $US4.2 billion in the year-ago period.
Same-store sales during the period dropped by 13.4% at Sears stores and by 9.5% at Kmart.
Sears previously announced 166 store closings that took effect this year, but the company has been quietly closing additional stores over the past several months, as Business Insider has reported.
Sears has cut its store count in half within the past five years. The company had 894 stores as of May 5, down from 1,980 stores in 2013.
The company is looking to raise cash through a potential deal with ESL Investments, the hedge fund run by Sears’ CEO, Eddie Lampert.
In April, Lampert proposed that ESL Investments purchase Sears’ Kenmore brand, its home-improvement business, its Parts Direct division, and some of the company’s real estate.
“While we are pleased with the progress on our capital structure initiatives, we are continuously exploring additional opportunities to further streamline operations and adjust inventory and operating expenses,” Sears CFO Rob Riecker said in a statement.
The company, Riecker added, “will need to continue to right-size our store base and focus on our best stores, including our new smaller store formats.”
