Sears Staying at Northwest Arkansas Mall

1 min read

Did you hear the rumor that the Sears store in Fayetteville’s Northwest Arkansas Mall was closing? Whispers heard it too.

It didn’t seem far-fetched since the struggling Chicago department store chain announced earlier this year it planned to close 50 stores, although a full list of closings is still unknown. This is on the heels of Sears shuttering other underperforming stores in the past few years.

It appears, though, that at least for now, Fayetteville’s Sears is safe.

“That’s a bad rumor,” Howard Riefs, Sears’ director of corporate communications, said in an email. “The store will remain open.”
