RICHMOND (WRIC/WCMH) — Sears will close 72 stores by September, according to reports.

Business Insider obtained a copy of the list, which includes the Regency Square location.

Most of the stores will close in September, Business Insider reported.

Earlier this year, the company announced it would be closing 78 Kmart stores and 26 Sears stores by spring.

In May, Sears reported its first quarterly profit in more than two years, even though same-store sales declined 11.9 percent. The profitable quarter was attributed to the sale of the Craftsman brand to Stanley Black & Decker.
