Could the Lubbock Sears Store Be On the Closing List? [UPDATE: NOPE]
UPDATE: May 31, 2018 7:30 p.m.
The Lubbock, Texas Sears store will remain open.
According to CNN Money, the four Texas stores that will close are:
- Sears 2401 S Stemmons Freeway Lewisville, Texas
- Sears 1800 Green Oaks Road Fort Worth, Texas
- Sears 11200 Lakeline Mall Drive Cedar Park, Texas
- Sears Golden Triangle Mall Denton, Texas
Original story: According to numerous sources including CNN Money, MSNBC and USA Today, Sears Corporation plans on closing an additional 72 stores. This leaves 894 stores with over 400 closed between Sears and Kmart.
All 72 of the locations are considered underperforming locations. As of now, no list has been made public on the locations set to close, but if Lubbock wasn't on the list, I would be very surprised.
The Lubbock Sears has suffered from a serious lack of customers for quite some time. I recently took a stroll through the store on a Tuesday night and only counted 10 customers on the first floor, lots of empty floor space, and bored employees.
If the Lubbock store makes the list, we will let you know about it.
