JASPER -- We’re not closing.  That word officially coming from the Sears in Jasper.

In a statement on social media, management at the north-side Sears confirmed what we have been reporting; that it is not part of the Sears Holding’s bankruptcy action.


The Jasper Sears is a “Hometown” store, which is under a different structure than the, now bankrupt, Sears Holdings.

It was announced Monday that the Jasper Kmart would close as part of the bankruptcy proceedings.

No word today on when their doors will close.

As for the local Sears, management says it’s business as usual and they are open to continue serving its customers.
