Lights out at Sears


The Sears Hometown Store on 2508 Vine reportedly was closed this week.

Surrounding store owners said the lights were off Friday morning, and the doors were locked. A sign that once stated the store is independently owned and operated by Trevor May has been removed.

May previously told The Hays Daily News that the store was neither closing nor changing owners in an Oct. 10 article.

May had said a "big misunderstanding" had started those rumors.

Attempts to contact May were unsuccessful.
