The Sears store in the College Square Mall in Morristown will be closing, a spokesperson has confirmed to 10News.
The store will begin liquidating its inventory on October 19, and will close for good in mid-January.
Around 70 employees will be affected by the closure, a majority of which are part-time. They will be notified of open positions at other nearby Sears and Kmart stores and will have to apply for those jobs.
The store is closing because the lease is not being renewed. Sears is not commenting or speculating on the reason for not renewing the lease.
