LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Sears at Gateway Mall is closed for good. According to Becky Sidles, Marketing Director of Gateway Mall, the Sears located at 6400 O Street will not reopen.

"We're looking at this as a great opportunity for new ideas, but that takes time," Sidles said.

Sears initially opened its doors back in 1971. In 2018, Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

According to a release by Sears Holdings, the company plans to close 80 Sears and Kmart stores around the country in March.
