Kmart, Sears closing additional stores by the end of the year. Is your location closing?

More Kmart and Sears stores will close by the end of the year.

Weeks after announcing 26 Sears and Kmart locations would close in October, nearly 100 additional stores are facing a similar fate in December or sooner.

While company officials did not release an official list of the locations closing, news outlets across the nation reported this week that their local stores were closing. A list was posted on the website with more than 80 Kmart stores.

"After careful review, we have made the difficult decision to close the Kmart stores in Wayne, Trenton, Wall and Somers Point," TransformCo. said in a statement sent to Asbury Park Press, part of the USA TODAY Network, about four New Jersey closures. "We encourage customers to continue shopping on for all their product needs.”

Liquidation sales are expected to begin in mid-September.

In February, former Sears CEO Eddie Lampert struck a last-minute deal to buy Sears assets out of bankruptcy and keep about 400 stores open under a new entity, Transform Holdco, also known as Transformco.

Lampert, who relinquished the CEO role when the company filed for bankruptcy, was the company's largest shareholder and creditor at the time of the bankruptcy.

In early August when announcing the October closures, the company said more closings were still a possibility.

“Following these steps, we will continue to evaluate our network of Sears and Kmart stores and cannot rule out additional store closures in the near term,” the company's Aug. 6 statement said. “Our goal remains to return the company to profitability and preserve as many jobs as possible in the communities we serve.”

As of Aug. 7, company spokesman Larry Costello said about 380 locations remained open.

“As we continue our transformation efforts, we are working closely with our stakeholders, and evaluating our network of stores, operations and business strategy in order to stabilize the business and support a long-term path to profitable success,” Transformco said in a statement to USA TODAY Friday.
