In early October, Sears announced bankruptcy and store closures. Now the Stroud Mall location is set to close in early 2019.

Stroud Mall management company, CBL properties told News13 the location will be repurposed.

"We are looking at a number of other opportunities across our portfolio," said Stacey Keating with CBL Properties. "We may add dining, or entertainment, or in some cases were adding service uses like offices or medical offices,” she added.
