KINGMAN - Sears Hometown will be moving across the road and reopening in June at Frontier Crossing, the strip mall being redeveloped at the southeast corner of I-40 and Stockton Hill Road.

The store, currently at 3115 N. Stockton Hill Road, will close shortly before the move and set up shop in a 7,600 square foot store. It will join 99 Cent Only, which is leasing a 17,000 square foot store in the shopping center being jointly redeveloped by Accelerated Development Services and Wadsworth Development. The 82,000 square foot strip mall formerly housed a grocery and call center.

"Our store is one of the first Sears Hometown stores opened in the chain," said Lisa Peterson, owner of Sears Hometown in Kingman. "We have been in the Kingman market in the same location since we opened in 1995 and have enjoyed serving our customer base. We are excited to be part of this renovated shopping center that will give us greater visibility and the opportunity to modernize and update our store."

The ownership group is in the midst of the strip mall's redevelopment, which includes updated storefronts, a modern color palette, a large freeway sign, and new landscaping and parking lot paving. Beside 99 Cent Only, which will move in this summer, the strip mall will feature three or four smaller retailers occupying spaces from 6,000 to 25,000 square feet, including a furniture, appliance and home and farm store. Also, the company is preparing the north end of the strip mall for a possible hotel for business travelers.

"We have received a high level of interest from tenants to locate into this center," said Dave Cheatham, managing principal at Accelerated Development. "They are excited to have an opportunity to be at the main retail hub for the market and to be part of a redevelopment project that will promote their retail concepts with prominent storefronts and a fresh, modern look. Sears Hometown is a terrific addition and we're excited to have them as part of this redevelopment."

Kinda funny that the pic is only of the sign and the oil/tire shop. The fact they are moving to what I believe is a much larger space will make the store much easier to shop. I've bought several tools, a dishwasher and a micro from Sears. Great deals if you watch their online ads.

With the old building empty, the vacant lot behind it will be much more attractive to someone wanting to build. Hopefully they can be sold as a package.

That's funny I have shopped there a few times since I moved to town 18 months ago and I am not a senior. I find their customer service very satisfactory, and look forward to an update to their store.

Have you looked around? kingman is full of seniors, and what do you know they have money to spend because they worked all there lives. There parents did business with sears and were always happy with the service, the big warehouse store scares them and it's too much walking for the disabled.

Great, one or two new stores and the rest is just the same old recycled stuff. Sears, just stay where you're at. I've gone in there twice in 5 years and saw nothing of interest as Craftsman tools are generally no longer USA made.

I think in the 14 years that I have lived here, I stepped foot in the Sears here in town maybe, once. No reason to go in there for me. Better prices from other stores. Sears is too expensive, and as a company whole, is probably going to be closed down in a matter of a few years. Got that out of the way. As for some other tenants at this new location: how about a Trader Joe's? I have gone there while living in Phoenix and found some of there stuff really really good. And please, are they still thinking about the hotel possibility? Do they not see that there is a school in the area where something bad could come out of it????

I have to say im not to thrilled about the Sears moving locations. Thier customer service is very poor. I purchased a refigerator there and had nothing but issues with the manager and the store owner. They were very rude. I will never buy from Kingman sears again.

So we`ll have a new empty storefront at the old location. Then the new location will be vacant soon, as Sears is on it`s deathbed. When was the last time anyone shopped at Sears who isn`t a senior?
