Sears is closing another 20 stores as the ailing retailer tries to turn around its business. "Based on shopper preference data, we expect Macy's to retain the highest share of sales when it closes stores and Sears to see the lowest sales-retention rates".

Sears Holdings (SHLD), the holding company for the two iconic retail brands, warned investors that it can't promise it will stay in business.

The Company will continue to take all necessary action to drive improvements in our organization to achieve our profitability objective with a greater focus on Best Members, Best Categories and Best Stores. An auto center at the Galewood Sears will close in late July.
