Earlier this year we learned that Sears was closing hundreds of stores across the nation. We later learned that the Sears store at Southridge was closing. Since hearing this news the Village Board has met to discuss plans to redevelop the north anchor site. Over the past couple of months the Village has met with representatives from the owners of the north anchor site, Seritage Growth Properties. We have also met with representatives from the City of Greenfield since part of the site is located in Greenfield. Discussions with Seritage have gone very well. Seritage, Greenfield and the Village are working on a redevelopment plan for the north anchor site. (Village of Greendale Press Release)
