With the latest closures, Sears’ store count will be about 1,200, compared to 2,073 five years ago, according to The shutting down is a part of the company’s “operational restructuring efforts,” a source told the Los Angeles Times.

The Chicago-based company has been facing financial problems for some time. In March, concerns about Sears going bankrupt surfaced.

"Our historical operating results indicate substantial doubt exists related to the company's ability to continue as a going concern," Sears said in an annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, at the time.

However, the company also assured its investors that nothing was changed and it was doing fine.

"Sears remains focused on executing our transformation plan and will continue to take actions to help ensure our competitiveness and ability to continue to meet our financial obligations," Jason Hollar, the company’s chief financial officer, said.

A Credit Suisse report released last week predicted between 20 percent and 25 percent of the country’s shopping malls will close down in the next five years as growing number of shoppers buy online. Other stores such as Macy’s and J.C. Penney announced closures of several stores this year. American Apparel and BCBG Max Azria have filed for bankruptcy and Bebe shut down all of its stores. According to the report, about 8,640 stores will close by the end of the year.

In February, J.C. Penney said it would provide employees affected by the closure a “voluntary early retirement program” depending on their age and tenure. Those eligible were given time until March 31 to inform the company whether they will accept the offer.
