Columbus' Sears closing April 29

By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) — Sears Holdings Corp. will close its Columbus, Miss., store on April 29.

It is among three in Mississippi and dozens across the country that the company is closing as a result of poor holiday sales.

While Sears has not released individual closing dates, a sign outside the Columbus store shows the close of the business is April 29.

The Columbus store occupies about 41,000 square feet and was one of Leigh Mall’s original tenants when the mall opened in 1973.

Sears will close stores at the Metrocenter Mall in west Jackson and in McComb.
