After previously closing 100 unprofitable stores back in May, Sears has announced it will be closing 46 more unprofitable stores come November.

The embattled retailer said liquidation sales at affected stores will begin as early as August 30. The closures are expected to be complete by November.

USA Today reports that the closings include 33 Sears locations along with 13 Kmart locations. The Henry Street location served as a model for the company's post-war expansion, according to previous Savannah Morning News reports. As of May, Sears was operating around 900 stores, according to CNBC.

Sears said the latest closings are part of the company's ongoing efforts to streamline operations, strengthen its capital position, and focus on its best performing stores. So far this year, Sears has closed or found unprofitable around 200 Kmart and Sears stores. Last year, the Valley lost Kmart stores in Coalinga and Kingsburg.

Sears has announced the closure of more than 100 Sears and Kmart locations since January, including a store in Westwood.
