Sears to Close Lakeforest Mall Store in Gaithersburg, Maryland


According to news reports, Sears has added its Lakeforest location in Gaithersburg, Maryland to a list of stores expected to close by December of this year.

​We know that the Lakeforest Sears was sold to investors back in March of 2018 for $4 million. We also know that WRS Inc., the company who bought the core of the mall, is in talks with the four department stores about purchasing the pad sites (which includes the parking lots).  The MoCo Show

With the Sears closing Macy's will be the sole survior of the anchor stores as the area becomes a redevelopment project.

It's kind of sad to see Sears stores close.  They have been around since I was a child.

Hi Roy Kelley oh that's not good Sears closing the doors at Lakeforest Mall. We still have a big Sears in the local Mall, they have been around for years.

Roy, this is sad to hear with having Sears around for so many years.   Sign of the times.
