Mall prepping former Sears store for 'future opportunities'

The Station Mall location of Sears opened in 1973 and closed permanently in October of 2017

The former Sears department store in the Station Mall is being prepared for possible future occupancy, says a spokesperson speaking on behalf of new mall management Cushman and Wakefield.

Workers have been filling multiple waste bins outside the former two-level department store with construction debris for at least a week.

On Wednesday, the company confirmed the store is being prepared by the mall's new owner SM International Holdings Ltd. for eventual occupancy.

"The landlord is doing some clean-up work to prepare the space for future leasing opportunities," said Sarah Geddes, CEO and founder of Press & Post, speaking on behalf of Cushman Wakefield.

No other details or timelines were offered.
