We already know that the Sears store at Ala Moana will be the first Sears store in Hawaii to close. However, the closing will be delayed until 2014, instead of the original reported closing date of mid-to-late 2013.
“Given the fact that it was earnings and just given the complexity of the amount of information flowing, it was missed,” said spokeswoman Kimberly Freely. “It was a decision between the two companies.”
Sears said last week that it had struck a deal with Ala Moana owner General Growth Properties Inc. to sell the venerable retail establishment and 10 other mainland stores for $270 million.
Looks like we have a little extra time to take advantage of the Sears store still being at Ala Moana. The Sears store was one of the original tenants when Ala Moana opened in 1959.
