Sears Holdings announced in January that it would shut down 150 stores this year, with most locations closing by April.

Now the company is closing even more stores.

Sears, which owns both Sears and Kmart stores, has been notifying local media of the additional closures over the last several weeks.

In a prerecorded conference call, Hollar said the company was looking for ways to generate "liquidity" — in other words, cash — and he specifically highlighted the company's real estate.

"We have a valuable real-estate portfolio, which at the end of the fourth quarter comprised 1,050 leases with significant optionality, as well as 380 owned stores, many in prominent locations," Hollar said. "We will continue to assess opportunities to right-size our store footprint and inventory levels aligned to our ongoing transformation to an asset-light integrated retail model."

Sears is under pressure from years of plunging sales, and investors have been supportive of the company's decision to close its unprofitable stores.

Sears now has fewer than 1,500 stores, down from 2,073 five years ago.
