The last Sears store in Dallas-Fort Worth will shutter in April
The last Sears store in Dallas-Fort Worth closes.
Located on the Town East Mall in Mesquite, the store is one of a dozen stores the department store chain is closing across the country.
Although the company didn’t officially announce the closure, it posted jobs for those seeking help on its website on Jan. 29, including the Mesquite store.
The job ad is for a position as “Temporary Cashier” and reads “Store Closing Mesquite”.
Before Mesquite, the last two Sears in North Texas were at Hulen Mall in Fort Worth and Parks in Arlington, both of which closed in 2020 after two closings in Plano, Richardson in 2018.
According to a Forbes story detailing some of the other notable closings on this round, including one in Los Angeles that is nearly a century old, the chain will exit with 36 stores or fewer. In 2019, Sears had 489 branches in operation and 761 branches in 1963.
Home to Kenmore, Craftsman, Diehard, and many more trusted brands, Sears was once known as the “World’s Largest Retailer”.
Sears Auto Center will remain open while the store is slated to close in April, according to a spokesman for the Town East Mall. The sale has already started.
