WINNIPEG – Not far from the giant empty Target building, there will soon be another vacancy near Polo Park.
The Sears Home Store on Ellice Avenue will be closing its doors March 12.
33 associates were notified today, and they can either apply for jobs in other Sears locations or take a separation package.
“The productivity of the stand-alone Home store was not where we needed it to be to continue operating as a separate entity,” a Sears spokesperson wrote in an email. “The exit of the store is not at all due to the quality of associates there.
We’re told liquidation is already underway.
