(AP) — Struggling department store chain Sears says it’s closing even more stores as it tries to turn around its business.

Sears Holdings CEO Eddie Lampert said in a blog post today that the company would close another eight Sears and 35 Kmart stores that are unprofitable by early October. Hundreds of store closings have already been announced this year.

Sears had said in March that there was “substantial doubt” it could continue after years of bleeding money, though it has insisted that its actions to turn around its business should help reduce that risk. With more people shopping online, mall foot traffic has dropped.

Lampert noted that Sears has opened smaller stores to attract customers and is on track to cut $1.25 billion in yearly costs.
