Sears to close storefront, auto shop in Richardson by late March

Sears Holdings announced Dec. 28 the closures of dozens of Sears and Kmart storefronts across the nation, including a location in Richardson.

Liquidation sales at Sears are expected to begin in January, and the store at 201 S. Plano Road is expected to be closed by late March, according to the release. The closure of the Sears storefront will also include the accompanying Sears Auto Center.

The recent rollout of closures comes as the the latest in a long line of shuttered storefronts announced by the company, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October.

    • Richardson Square Mall opened in 1977. At one point, the mall had four full anchors: Montgomery Ward, Dillard’s, Titche-Goettinger (which became Joske’s in 1979), and Sears. It was demolished in 2007. Now located in its place is an outdoor retail center that goes by the name Richardson Square. The retail center includes Super Target with a Starbucks and Pizza Hut Express inside, Sears, Ross Dress for Less, Shoe Carnival, and a Lowe’s home improvement store. The center also includes pad sites such as Panda Express, Chick-fil-A, Whataburger, Sonic Drive-In, and Bank of America.

  1. Thanks Walmart. Walmart changed after old man Walton let his kids take over. Built on the American made products that produced hundreds of thousands of jobs. Everyone jumped in and made Walmart’s profits jump. Kids took over and everything went to china. All the American companies laid off workers who bought in to the old man’s dream of quality products and a job for everyone … even in small town America. Companies that are American and sell through them have cut cost and quality. Example… Levi’s… Original… Not so
    I heat treated the front metal buttons for them. It was a huge contract. I look at the snaps… They are cheap and nowhere near as strong as the old ones.It is sad to see an old iconic store like Sears go under because the Chinese basically closed there market to the because of Walmart. Bye the way… If you take the gross expenditures and Market value Walmart would be the 7th largest economy in the world…. Via info from the lib of Congress.
