The Sears department store and Auto Center at 1601 North Harlem Avenue in Chicago is closing and here is my trip to the store a few weeks ago. The closure was announced in late June and the store is likely to close by late September.
The Auto Center located across from the main store has already closed, much like how the pharmacies at Kmart stores close when a liquidation begins.
The store was still pretty well stocked, at least the clothing department was, as most Sears stores are, clothing is there number one commodity.
I always thought the store was in Elmwood Park, the Walgreens across the street is in Elmwood Park, but the address to Sears in is Chicago, so Harlem Avenue is the border to the city limits.
