Sears is apparently planning to close eight more stores in the Chicago area.
Crain's is reporting Sears Holdings has hired a real estate firm to lease two Sears stores and six Kmarts.
The Sears stores are in Crystal Lake and at Stratford Square Mall in Bloomingdale. The Kmarts are in Lansing, Homewood, Tinley Park, New Lenox, Round Lake Beach, and Rockford.
Crain's says the selloff is an effort to raise cash as Sears continues to struggle to stay afloat.
