Sears closes Beatrice Hometown store

Sears closes  Beatrice Hometown store

Due to the current financial situation of the exhausted retailer Sears, the Hometown store in Beatrice is closing its gates next month.

The store is still open for now because of the Sears bankruptcy according to Jonathan Davis, Beatrice store manager in an interview with the local news who said that the store is without an owner after the former owner Gene Searcey, who took over the store eight years ago.

Davis explains the reasons for the closure and stated: “Sears Hometown stores are a different corporation than the Sears Holding mall stores, It just happens to be around the same time, so I could see where the confusion would be. Corporate looked for a buyer for more than a year and a half and couldn’t find anybody with interest, so they decided to shut the store down.”
