Here is one of the oldest Sears stores (opened in 1939) in the Houston area still in operation. This Sears is located just off of the Southwest Freeway on Fannin Street. This store is also the only three level Sears in the Houston area. I am not too familiar with the history of this store, so if any of my readers would like to add more please comment below. This store also has a nearby Auto Center a block away, but I did not get any photos on this trip. Check out this chron.com article for more photos. Warning; many of the interior photos have severe glare issues (time for a new phone). The first level or basement level features Hardware, Lawn and Garden, Electronics, and Appliances. The second level is actually at ground level since this store has a basement level as the first floor. Men's, Women's, Shoes, and Optical are on this level. There is also a Keyshop near the North entrance of the store. The third level features Childrens, more Women's clothing, housewares, and furniture.
