Sears closing Waterloo store by early April

Sears closing Waterloo store by early April

The Sears store is at 5900 West Glades Road., in Boca Raton.

Sears stores in Pennsylvania that will close are in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Hanover. The Rapid City store is scheduled to close in April.

Earlier Thursday, Macy's Inc. announced it was closing 11 stores early this year.

Billings says losing Kmart is a tough blow to the Red Oak retail community.

The decline of Sears Holdings has been swift in recent years.

"But I think in the long run this presents a very good opportunity for both the Ross Park Mall and Ross Township to have a redevelopment of that end of the mall", said Korbel. "If stores like the Red Oak store would have been combined with the Sears Hometown model, and some other things, to consolidate multiple business models within one roof, you may have seen more success". So, just to say it's just the small stores is not exactly the case. They are will be closing in early April.

Thursday's announcement follows the closure of the Sears store at the Cranberry Mall last October and the imminent closing of the Kmart location at the Clarion Mall. Liquidation sales may begin as early as January 12, and Sears Holdings is closing a total of 103 Sears and Kmart stores across the United States.

The Sears located at 5540 Winfield Avenue at Oakridge Mall is closing, and the store at San Rafael's Northgate Mall is closing too.

While closing a store is always a hard decision because of the impact on our customers, our associates and the community, Macy's is delighted to have served this community over the years.

Last year, commissioners adopted a mixed use zoning ordinance with the hopes of allowing more business to set up shop in the commercial district.
