March 22, 2002

HALFWAY - Sears opened as an anchor store at Valley Mall on Thursday.

"We got a good crowd today," Marketing Manager Jamie Bakner said.

The store will be open Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. with the grand opening Saturday, Bakner said.

Bakner said the new store is close to having its full complement of employees. The new store will employ approximately 175 people. The Sears at Long Meadow Shopping Center had 130 employees.

The anchor site previously was occupied by Montgomery Ward, which closed in March 2001.

Sears closed at Long Meadow Shopping Center on Sunday, a store employee said.
