in-person retail fades away (goodbye, sears)

The Sears store in my local mall has been torn down. It’s been vacant for four years.

In the last few weeks the store was open I went up there almost every day to photograph the way a former retail giant looked as it died. At first I was worried that employees might challenge me and/or ask me to leave. But as it turns out, employees who only have that job for another paycheck or two don’t really care all that much.

And so, here are a couple of versions about what the death of Sears looked like.
