Sears Holdings earlier in the day had reported a net loss of $424 million for the first quarter of 2018. Last year's gain included $492 million from the sale of Sears' Craftsman tool brand to Stanley Black & Decker, a deal valued at roughly $900 million overall. Revenue, meanwhile, dropped more than 30 percent to $2.89 billion.
Even though the current retail environment is hard for many retailers, Sears' performance has been much worse than its rivals. Sales have fallen for more than six straight years despite efforts to revamp stores, stock more mattresses and appliances, and partner with sites like Amazon.
"We continue to evaluate our network of stores, which are a critical component in our transformation, and will make further adjustments as needed and as warranted", Sears said.
Sears same-store sales fell 13.4 percent, while sales at Kmart declined 9.5 percent, according to Sears Holdings quarterly report. Worse, the retailer's sales base, seen in its comps, continues shrinking.
The list of closing locations will be released later today, Sears Holdings said.
The operator of Sears and Kmart stores posted a first-quarter loss of $3.93 a diluted share. Amazon began selling Sears's Kenmore brand of ovens, washers and other appliances a year ago.
