Like a lot of brick and mortar locations Sears in Chattanooga’s Northgate Mall is closing. After being there for decades their last day is at the end of January. Nationally Sears and K-Mart have suffered due to low sales and heavy competition from other stores and online shopping. I hate to see things like this happen because it means jobs lost and more empty space in shopping malls. I hated when the Radio Shack in the same mall closed up a couple years ago. I hope for the best for those workers who will have to find a new job soon.
