“While it is sad to see this iconic retailer close, we have known this day was coming for over 5 years and are excited about the potential for this wing of the mall. With a large housing development underway adjacent to the Sears location, we see this as a launching point for the evolution of Arden Fair to meet the needs of the 21st-century consumer,” the statement said.
