Sale planned for Sears head office

Sears’ parent company, Transformco, said this week it will put the troubled retailer’s head office on the market early next year. It will also consider other redevelopment plans for the 273-acre site in the Chicago suburbs. Spokesperson Larry Costello said a number of employees have shifted, in whole or in part, to remote work.

“These changes have reduced our needs for a corporate campus that was built 30 years ago for the needs of a more centralized business,” he said in an email.
