Farmville’s Sears store to close

Farmville will soon have one less retailer. Sears Hometown Store, locally owned and operated on South Main Street, advertised a “Store Closing” sale in Wednesday’s print edition of The Farmville Herald.

Store owner/operator Frank Medlin declined to comment. The Herald also attempted to reach Sears corporate offices for comment, but messages were not returned.

The newspaper advertisement featured 30-50 percent off of home appliances, 30 percent off on lawn and garden, 30-40 percent off on tools, 60 percent off on mattresses, and 30 percent off on sporting goods and vacuums for Aug. 6-12.
