As the merchandise dwindles and display racks continue to empty at the Sears store in Coral Ridge Mall, shoppers like Don Hodson of Coralville said they are sorry to see it close on Sunday.
“It’s too bad to have it closed. It’s been here since the Coral Ridge opened in July 1998,” Hodson said. “You have to change to be competitive.”
Sears Holdings, corporate parent of Sears and Kmart, sold its building at Coral Ridge last year to mall owner General Growth Properties and announced plans to close the store early this year.
General Growth, which bought 11 Sears stores for $270 million, said it is not ready to announce a new tenant for the soon-to-be-vacant anchor store at Coral Ridge.
