Sears Is Closing Another 46 Stores—Here’s The List

Here's the full list.

Sears is swinging the ax again. The struggling retailer announced plans to close another 46 Sears and Kmart stores.

The company has already closed more than 100 stores this year — including the last remaining Sears in its hometown of Chicago — as it attempts to stem losses.

Employees at 13 Kmart stores and 33 Sears stores were notified that their locations would close by November.

When Sears and Kmart merged in 2005, they had about 3,500 US stores between them. About 900 US stores remain, and more closings are likely.

“We continue to evaluate our network of stores, which is a critical component to our integrated retail transformation, and will make further adjustments as needed,” the company said in a statement.

Selling Assets To Raise Money

Liquidation sales at some of the stores will start as soon as Aug. 30.

Sears has lost $11.2 billion since 2010, its last profitable year and sales have plunged 60 percent in that time.

The company has been looking at selling assets as a way to raise money. In August, CEO and majority shareholder Eddie Lampert offered to buy the company’s Kenmore appliance brand for $400 million, and its Sears Home Services division for between $70 million and $80 million.

Lampert said he also plans to negotiate with lenders to try to extend the repayment schedule for some of Sears’ debt.

Shares of Sears have plunged 85 percent in the the last year. They hit an all-time low of $1.15 a share in midday trading Wednesday before closing at $1.18, still down 5 percent for the day. Shares were slightly lower in early trading once again Aug. 23.
