Sears ready to step off the mall
October 25, 2002,
Hoffman Estates, IL — Sears will open its first off-the-mall full-line store in West Jordan, UT, a suburb of Salt Lake City. The pilot store, with size yet to be determined, will open in the fall of 2003.
"We are now in a position of growing our store base," Sears chairman and ceo Alan Lacy told analysts during its annual meeting here last week. By going off-the-mall, a scenario long under consideration, "we will be more convenient to customers. We also will rethink the format."
