4:30pm – Trevor May told Hays Post that a “certain chain of events” this afternoon is allowing the Sears Hometown Store in Hays to remain open Friday and beyond. May said that after this afternoon’s events (which he wouldn’t comment on in any detail) there are no longer any plans to close the store.
Original story – Sears Hometown Center located on Vine Street is closing its doors on Friday, October 11th.
Store owner Trevor May told Hays Post that this isn’t a permanent closure. He said that it will be a temporary shutdown as the store transitions back to Sears. “I can’t tell you exactly how long it’s going to be closed, but they’ll bring in a transition team and reopen it back up and continue on business as normal. Me personally, I don’t have the means to continue on.”
May declined to comment further on the reasons behind the temporary closure and why he is leaving, only commenting that his departure is for “personal reasons.”
