HADLEY – The Sears Hometown store on Route 9 in Hadley, one of the last in Western Massachusetts, will close early next year. The store, which is independently owned, had previously said it was unaffected by the national franchise’s financial troubles and wasn’t “going anywhere.” However, the store will shut its doors sometime in the second week of January 2019, said Cody Hanlon, an associate with the store, by phone Saturday. Hanlon said the store owners plan to reopen at a more centralized, “accessible” location at some point in the future, but could not give a specific timeline for when that would occur. Hanlon further stressed that the store’s services would be available online until the business found its new location. It’s been a fairly dire year for Sears. Stores across Massachusetts have closed throughout the last twelve months. Units closed in Springfield and Peabody in May, while stores in Holyoke and Taunton followed in August. In October, the company filed for bankruptcy and announced that it would be closing an additional 142 stores nationwide.
