Sears Expands Off Mall Strategy

Sears, Roebuck is looking to grow home-goods sales by adding stores away from malls as shoppers flock to new retail centers.

That off-mall strategy includes more dealer stores located in smaller, rural markets, and home appliance showrooms in big cities.

Sears has about 860 dealer stores and 24 appliance showrooms, in addition to its more than 900 traditional mall-based stores. This year, the retailer is adding 75 dealer outlets and about 50 appliance showrooms, said Steve Titus, vice president of Sears Dealer Stores, in an interview.
