June 24 (UPI) -- Sears Holdings will close another 20 stores throughout the United States to add to a growing list of defunct locations, the department store company confirmed Friday.
The closings emerged in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from real estate investment trust Seritage Growth Properties, which operates in tandem with Sears.
A company spokesperson told The Washington Post that Sears had been renting 235 locations from Seritage since selling the properties to the trust in 2015.
The closing locations include two Kmart and 18 Sears stores. They're now among the more than 260 stores Sears Holdings has announced it would close this year.
Sears, which reported losses of $2.2 billion last year, will close the stores in mid-September. It has another roughly 1,100 locations.
