Sears Outlet Stores expands Kansas City center

Hoffman Estates, Ill. - Sears Outlet Stores has leased a 354,000-sq.-ft. former Sears location in Kansas City, expanding outlet store operations and services and developing a new central distribution center for the South-Central region. This new repair and distribution center is expected to create nearly 160 new jobs to be filled by Kansas City locals.

In addition to the development of this new distribution center, Sears Outlet Stores has invested in updating and remodeling both its retail location and the building's exterior. The retail space in this location has expanded more than 50%.

The retail store, which now has more than 27,000-sq.-ft. of retail selling space, has also expanded its assortment of merchandise, bringing in new categories like apparel and furniture. Sears expects to have the project complete by early this fall.
