Chicago, once the hometown of Sears headquarters, is losing its last Sears store:
“The embattled retailer informed employees at the Six Corners store on the edge of the Portage Park neighborhood Thursday of its plans to close in mid-July. With the store’s demise, Chicago is losing one more reminder of the heyday of a hometown company that was once the world’s largest retailer.”
