Sears Opened In Peterborough 1954, Closes For Good This Weekend (Take Trip Down Memory Lane)

What began on August 26th, 1954 in Peterborough ends this Sunday (January 14th), as Sears closes for good in town.

Sears had an amazing 64 year run here, and everyone knows someone who worked there or shopped there at one time. And who could forget the excitement of receiving the Sears Catalogue and Sears Wish Book in the mail.

The Sears location in Peterborough is among the last locations to close across Canada, marking the end of the official end of the chain’s historic retail reign in the country.
