U-Haul International announced Wednesday it expects to acquire 13 Sears and Kmart properties, including the Kmart on Stone Drive in Kingsport.
The demolition of the old Sears location at the Fort Henry Mall began last week. Work is expected to wrap up before the holiday season.
The grown ups in my family called it Sears and Roebuck as often as not, and in the 1960s and early 1970s, it was our go-to for many purchases, big and small.
By the end of the year, folks in Kingsport can expect to see more changes happening at the Fort Henry Mall. The old Sears location will soon be demolished, and two new places to eat will open their doors before the holiday season.
