ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - One of three new Sears Home & Life stores in the nation held their grand opening Friday in Anchorage.
The new Home & Life stores will offer appliances, mattresses, home services and connected home products. The stores were developed based on insights from Sears Appliances & Mattresses stores that opened in 2017, driven primarily by availability of stores and the needs of the local community.
Store Manager, Bert Feske, says the store itself is smaller than the old Sears but it has a new, nicer, modern appeal to it.
"They're going to walk in and just say 'wow' and that's what we wanted -- we wanted to be able to show off our premium stuff and to really make a bang coming back in, and show people we're back and we're here to stay. This is what the new Sears looks like," said Feske.
The other two out of these three new Sears stores are located in Lafayette, Louisiana and Overland Park, Kansas.
The store here in Anchorage is located on East Dimond Boulevard and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
