Sears closing in LaVale
The Sears store at Country Club Mall in LaVale will begin its going-out-of-business sale in 2 weeks.
The retailer confirmed Thursday that the store will close its doors for good by Feb. 6.
Sears has been an anchor at Country Club Mall since it opened in 1982.
The company said a closing specialist, Eldon W. Gottschalk and Associates of Huntington Beach, Calif., will handle the store closing’s ad campaign.
Holiday reminder: Veterans Day is Monday. All government offices — federal, state, county and local — will be closed and no mail will be delivered.
School is out for both Hampshire and the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind.
