The last Sears store in Fresno County will soon be closing its doors.
In February of 2019, Sears suffered a financial crisis and filed for bankruptcy. Hundreds of their stores across the country closed.
Last year, the Sears at Manchester Mall in Fresno, shut its doors as a result from the bankruptcy.
The Clovis location at Sierra Vista Mall, however, is closing based on a legal matter of property which is a separate issue from the Sears franchise.
“It has nothing to do with Sears, it is more of a procedural issue going on in the courts to get things to settle up,” said Andrew Haussler, the Community & Economic Development Director for the City of Clovis.
On Thursday, Feb. 4, a liquidator is set to begin adjusting prices to the merchandise.
No date has been announced when the store will close.
