Sears Seeking Local Business Leader For Potential Store

A national retailer and local economic development leaders are teaming up to find interested entrepreneurs to bring a national product to Clinton.

Sears and the DeWitt County Development Council (DCDC) are seeking potential business leaders who would be interested in operating a Sears store locally. Mark Killough with the DCDC explains the retailer has targeted Clinton as a market they would like to tap into.

Killough feels this could be a big development for the community. He explains this is something the community is in need of with recent stores like Sears having closed their doors. With a place like Sears locally, residents wouldn't have to leave town for appliances and other needs.

To learn about the opportunity to own and operate a Sears Hometown Store within an existing independent retail location, please contact Region Development Manager, Mike Jones at 205-432-8959 or via email at mike.m.jones71@shos.com .
