Although I haven't been in that (or any) Sears in many years, the Hackensack one along with the Library (to me) seem to be the last anchors of my Hackensack upbringing. At least we still have Lido and B-W Bakery right? Those don't seem to be going anywhere

HACKENSACK CHRONICLE REPRINTS NEWS STORY
ON 'LIKELY' CLOSING OF SEARS STORE.


The Sears Roebuck and Co. store on Main Street in Hackensack is called "iconic" and an "outdated mainstay in the heart of Hackensack" by reporter Melanie Anzidel of The Record and NorthJersey.com.

"The retail dinosaur has slowly lost its footing in the Garden State," she wrote, noting Sears filed for bankruptcy in the fall of 2018. The store opened in 1932.

Anzidel then wrote:

"The store [in Hackensack] even downsized, in a potential last ditch effort to survive, by selling off a separate parcel of its land to build an ALDI, a German discount grocery chain that opened on the shared property in 2017, at the other end of the parking lot."

Knocking down the Sears tire and auto battery store to clear the property for construction of a supermarket doesn't sound like downsizing to me, and it wasn't "a separate parcel," as Anzidel notes herself when reporting ALDI opened in 2017 "at the other end of the [Sears] parking lot."

When Sears filed for bankruptcy, the retailer still operated stores in Hackensack, Livingston, Rockaway, Wayne and Jersey City, which soon may be the only Sears left in New Jersey, Anzidel said.

It's official. Start saving your money for all that Sears stuff you wouldn't have been caught dead buying a few months ago.

Sears Auto Center hasn't gone anywhere. It was the Sears Appliance and Outdoor Store annex that was sacrificed.

Sears Closing sale: attention, big guys
« Reply #28 on: September 03, 2020, 09:53:10 PM »
If you're a large gentleman (size 12 or 13 shoe, 3XL jacket), get over to Sears' closing sale. I found a beautiful pair of work/winter boots and a sharp almost-leather jacket that would have cost me a total of less than $40, had I been those sizes.

Sears closes tomorrow: a final walk-through like no other
« Reply #29 on: September 11, 2020, 04:04:18 PM »
Not being sure if I could be around do this on the final day,  I picked the penultimate day. Maybe picking September 11 to do this wasn't such a good idea.





Nice final impression, Sears, from someone who first shopped there in the 1950s.

You won't be missed.
