Toronto – Sears Canada will open a series of pop-up stores on university campuses across the province of Ontario this month, stocked with housewares, home decor, bed and bath, electronics, and cosmetics.

The four pop-up stores will be housed this month at Brock University, Sept. 4-5; University of Western Ontario, Sept. 8-9; McMaster University, Sept. 11-12; and    Queen’s University, Sept. 26-27.
