Sears Announces Final Two Stores They’ll Be Sharing With Primark

Last year, as part of their “taking on roommates” strategy of keeping their doors open, Sears announced that they were leasing parts of seven stores to Primark, a clothing retailer out of Ireland. Sears has finally named all seven of the stores where Primark will be moving in. All seven are in the Northeast.

Back in October, while announcing that Primark was coming to the King of Prussia Mall near Philadelphia, the company’s head of real estate explained that partnering with other retailers made perfect sense for Sears, which no longer needs its massive anchor stores. “Primark will bring increased customer traffic to each of these malls and dramatically enhance the retail shopping experience as we rationalize our selling space to improve the productivity of our stores,” he said back then. Maybe some of those shoppers will wander into Sears. Or not.

Here are the malls where customers can expect to check out Primark sometime in 2015. The two announced this week are in bold.

Burlington Mall, Burlington, Massachusetts
Danbury Fair in Danbury, Connecticut
Freehold Raceway Mall, Freehold, New Jersey
King of Prussia Mall, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania
South Shore Plaza, Braintree, Massachusetts
Staten Island Mall, Staten Island, New York
Willow Grove Park Mall, Willow Grove, Pennsylvania
