The greater part of those misfortunes came amid the last three months, amid which Sears petitioned for financial protection insurance, as indicated by a quarterly money related report recorded Thursday. 

    The organization reported a 4.3 percent to ascend in deals amid the last quarter at its Sears and Kmart stores that had been open somewhere around a year.
