Sears store

Hi,

Can anyone tell us if there's a Sears store near Philadelphia - partner is after their 'Craftsman' tool range for his work.

Many thanks :-)

Nothing downtown. Will you have a car? Are you willing to spend 45 minutes on a bus each way?

Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem PA. It's just off of US 1 North (Roosevelt Boulevard), & close to the Bensalem exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike)

Other malls in the area also have Sears stores. If you let us know where you're starting from we can give you more precise info.

This brings up the question: What happened to Roebuck??

There's one in NE Philadelphia, 7300 Bustleton Avenue & another in the Moorestown NJ mall.

Roebuck died in the 40's & his name was dropped by the firm in the 1970s.

The one in King of Prussia would actually be the easiest to get to by public transportation. It's one bus from downtown directly to the mall.

Thanks to all for the replies. We will be staying at Loews - on Market Street, I believe? No transport means apart from public.

Have read that there's a Sears in King Prussia way, but thought it's 'Optics' - that to me is an optician, right?

Would like the address for Kmart if any one knows?!

You are correct about "optical", but that is merely one department at Sears. The King of Prussia mall map shows a full-sized Sears as still being there.

Here is the link: www.simon.com/mall/king-of-prussia-mall/map.

I am writing this from Quebec and when I opened the Sears corporate home page, I was taken immediately to a description of Sears' international services, including having them shop in advance for visitors and having the merchandise ready for pick up, plus international shipping options from Sears directly to foreign addresses.
