NEW YORK — The bad months keep piling up for bankrupt Kmart Corp.
In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Monday, the distressed retailer said it posted a second-quarter loss of $377 million, or 75 cents a share, for the period ended July 31, compared with a loss of $377 million, or 77 cents, for the same quarter a year ago. Excluding non-comparable items, discontinued operations and reorganization costs, the loss was $333 million, or 66 cents, in the quarter, versus $304 million, or 62 cents, in the same quarter last year.

Sales for the quarter fell 15.7 percent to $7.52 billion from $8.92 billion last year. The retailer, which closed 283 under-performing stores since filing a voluntary Chapter 11 petition in January, said same-store sales fell 11 percent in the quarter.
