Sears store at Findlay Village Mall to close in April

Findlay’s Sears Roebuck and Co. store will close in mid-April as part of a company restructuring, parent company Sears Holdings reported Tuesday. A liquidation sale begins on Friday.

The closing will be part of a series of actions to reduce costs, adjust assets and change its business model, Sears Holdings said Tuesday.

“These actions will better enable us to focus our investments on serving our customers and members through integrated retail — at the store, online and in the home,” said Corporate Communications Director Howard Riefs.

No further details were provided. The Findlay store has 54 employees, most of whom are part-time.

“Those (employees) that are eligible will receive severance and have the opportunity to apply for open positions at area Sears or Kmart stores, Riefs said.
