Sears and Kmart just closed nearly 80 stores — see if your local store is on the list:

Sears just closed dozens of stores.

The chain said in April that it would accelerate the closing of 78 stores, including 10 Sears stores and 68 Kmart stores. All but two were expected to close in late July.

Sears has been struggling.

In the most recent quarter, Sears’ sales dropped 8.3% to $5.39 billion. Same-store sales dropped 7.1% at the company’s namesake stores and fell 5% at Kmart stores.

In announcing earnings, the company revealed that its chief financial officer, Robert Schriesheim, would be leaving Sears to “pursue other career opportunities.”

The company didn’t say how many employees would be laid off as a result of the store closures.

“The decision to close stores is a difficult but necessary step as we take aggressive actions to strengthen our company, fund our transformation and restore Sears Holdings to profitability,” Sears CEO Edward S. Lampert said in a statement earlier this year. “We’re focusing on our best members, our best categories and our best stores as we work to accelerate our transformation.”
