SEARS TO CLOSE 72 MORE U.S. STORES AS SALES PLUNGE
Sears will close another 72 stores as sales shrink and losses grow. The beleaguered retailer, which operates Kmart and Sears stores, said it has identified about 100 stores that are no longer turning a profit, and the majority of those locations will be shuttered soon. After this round of closures, the company will have about 800 stores, far below the 2012 peak of 4,000 stores. Sears also posted a quarterly loss of $424 million and said closings contributed to a drop of more than 30 per cent in revenue.
