Save our Sears!

    1. Petition by

      Harvey Johnson, Jr.

Sears at Metrocenter Mall is vitally important to the Mall, the City of Jackson and the entire Metro Jackson Area. As the only full service Sears within a 90 mile area, people depend on the store for quality goods.

Mayor Harvey Johnson, Jr. led the development of the Highway 80 Economic Development Strategy that is now being implemented to encourage development and redevelopment of the entire corridor, including the Metrocenter Mall, and Sears would greatly benefit from this. Additionally, the City of Jackson will locate six city divisions at the Mall within 60 days that will bring more than 300 City employees to the facility and countless citizens to the Mall who would undoubtedly shop at Sears.

Private developers also have proposed mixed use, retail and housing developments at and around Metrocenter that would bring substantial value to the facility that Sears would benefit from as well.

Please sign this petition and let Sears know that we want them to stay open at Metrocenter!!!

      Sears is an important anchor store for Metro Center. It is important for it to remain in that mall for future growth and development of the area. I pray they will reconsider their decision.

      It's more than high time to stop the white-flight from Jackson. I remember when this city had three working malls. Now, there's just Northpark (outside Jackson), and Highland Village. If we continue to let businesses close, and run away from Jackson, then we'll have a ghost-town in less than a decade. Not a good image for city which is the seat of government for this state. Is it?
