Sears to close San Jacinto Mall store
Sears will shutter its store at San Jacinto Mall, the latest casualty in the 125-year-old retailer's ongoing efforts to streamline its operations amid growing competition from e-commerce.
The 152,000-square-foot store is expected to close in mid-December, according to Fidelis Realty Partners, which owns the Baytown mall.
