Earlier this year we learned that Sears was closing hundreds of stores across the nation.  We later learned that the Sears store at Southridge was closing.  Since hearing this news the Village Board has met to discuss plans to redevelop the north anchor site.  Over the past couple of months the Village has met with representatives from the owners of the north anchor site, Seritage Growth Properties.
