NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Sears Hometown Store will close at the end of March, according to a report last week in North Adams Transcript. 

The store opened in 2010, two years after Sears first started searching for a local entrepreneur to own and operate the smaller-scaled home store.

The Sears offers appliance, televisions, tools, and snow removal and garden equipment among othe items. Neal LaComb, who also oeprates a Hometown Sears in Hadley, opened the store with the intention of selling it but couldn't find a buyer. Sears Holdings took over the property last year.

The national retailer has seen declining sales that past few years and announced it was closing more than 100 regular Sears and Kmart stores this year. Most Hometown Stores are independently owned.

The North Adams store is the second in the former Kmart building to close within the last few months. Staples shuttered its store after five years in the plaza, citing poor sales.

There are Sears Hometown Stores in Great Barrington and in Bennington, Vt. The Nort Adams location is having a going-out-of-business sale through March 27. It was named a "Premier Dealer" store, among about 20 percent of the 1,100 Hometown Stores, for its performance, customer service and community involvement.
