According to, after closing hundreds of locations in recent years, Sears plans to open three smaller stores in May in an attempt to reclaim shoppers by selling tools, appliances and other hard goods.

The New stores, called Sears Home & Life, will be a fraction of the size of a typical Sears department store and will also sell mattresses and lawn and garden equipment.

Located in Anchorage, Alaska, Lafayette, La., and Overland Park, Kan., the stores will range in size from 10,000 to 15,000 square feet.

Sears also plans to convert three smaller stores it opened in 2017 to the Home & Life format.
