CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - CINCINNATI (FOX19) -- Three more local Sears stores are shutting down.

Stores at Florence Mall in Florence, Northgate Mall in Colerain Township and Dayton Mall in Miami Township will close for good in November, Sears Holdings announced Thursday.

The closures include the Sears Auto Center at Northgate. It's slated to go dark in late September.

Another 44 stores also will call it a day nationwide as Sears continues to try to streamline operations, according to a company statement.

More store closings may be coming.

Sears is continuing to evaluate its network of stores and "will make further adjustments as needed," their statement reads.

"Eligible associates will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Kmart or Sears stores," Sears said.

Liquidation sales will begin as early as Aug. 30 at the stores that are closing.

Sears has announced the closure of more than 100 Sears and Kmart locations since January, including a store in Westwood.
