By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- The Sears store at Lindale Mall will close sometime in July this year, according to Howard Reifs of Sears Holdings Corporation (SHC).

Reifs said the store was among 265 Sears and Kmart store locations SHC sold to Seritage Growth Properties and then leased back. Seritage is reclaiming the Lindale Mall location.

SHC has not released how many workers the closing will affect, but said those who are eligible will receive severance pay and may apply for open positions at other Sears or Kmart locations. There are Sears stores in Davenport, Des Moines, and Sioux City, as well as multiple Sears Hometown Stores throughout Iowa, which is a separate company.
