Sears noted in its first-quarter earnings report that it identified 100 stores as unprofitable, and marked 63 for closure in September.
Liquidation sales are set to start as early as July 13 for the latest batch of targeted stores and have already begun for the balance.
Sears said the closings are part of its ongoing effort to streamline operations and focus on its most profitable locations. Nevertheless, store closures accounted for nearly two-thirds of its 31 percent first-quarter sales decline, the retailer reported.
