Customers are dismayed when the venerable department store files for bankruptcy, “biting the dust” and closing its doors permanently

Shoppers in New Jersey are devastated to learn that the last Sears store there may be permanently closed. There is a bargain sale going on, with prices as low as 70% off many things as managers try to get rid of the remains of the inventory.

The Jersey City, New Jersey business is having a 40% and 50% price reduction on clothing and tools.

There are now twelve Sears stores open in the United States, including the one in Jersey City. Only 14 months have passed since the troubled department store business filed for bankruptcy, and now it is set to close.

At its height, Sears had almost 700 locations, but hundreds have since closed.

“Another dies,” wrote a customer on the internet.

The impending store closure has left customers feeling both devastated and confused.

“Why? It’s a famous store; closing it makes no sense.” It’s at a handy position, a customer commented.

Another said, “My son is heartbroken and obsessed with Sears.”

A third person commented, “Dang, they just keep shutting them down.”

Another person posted, “So sad.”

Customers commented on the official Facebook page of the store, stating it appeared empty in response to photos taken inside.

Dedicated patrons have declared that they will hurry to the store before it closes.

What day is the last one? This expedites my travel arrangements,” a client remarked.

There are just eleven remaining Sears stores, four of which are located in California.

There are one each in Texas and Massachusetts, two in Washington, and three in Florida.

Puerto Rico and Mexico are still home to Sears.

Bosses announced in May 2022 that as part of the company’s restructuring plans, over 70 outlets would close.

Between 2018 and 2022, hundreds of Sears stores permanently closed as the brand struggled to stay in business.

When the company emerged from bankruptcy in October 2022, it had just 22 outlets remaining.

According to Fox Business, retail analyst Ray Wimer predicted the chain, which was established in 1892, will die a protracted death.

“The end is inevitable given the amount of competition in the retail market for similar goods and their lack of an enticing value proposition for customers,” he stated.
