A Sears spokesman said Thursday the number of workers affected was not available.

The 100 stores that will close will be a mix of Kmart and Sears locations.

Hay, 23, said she has shopped at Sears for much of her life, but she hasn't bought much there recently except tools.

Sears had already been planning to downsize in Orland Park, where it's been an anchor store since the mall opened in 1976. Kmart stores in Mt. Vernon and West Frankfort, Illinois, are also closing along with the Sears store in Marion, Illinois.

The news comes a little more than six months after the company announced in early June that it was closing 66 stores nationwide, including a Sears in Vineland, and Kmarts in Mantua, Gloucester County, and Manahawkin, Ocean County.

Business Insider reports the company's sales are down 45% since early 2013. "In the process ... we will continue to close some unprofitable stores". In the same period a year ago, it reported a loss of $748 million, or $6.99 per share, on sales of $5 billion.
