Here is the mall entrance of the North Shore Square Sears located in Slidell Louisiana. The closing of this store is surprising because this was the only full service Sears store in St. Tammany parish, which has over 230,000 residents. There is a store in nearby Hammond Louisiana, but it is not convenient to the majority of St. Tammany parish. The Sears like all the other anchor stores at North Shore Square is only one story. At this point the closing sale had just begun and the store was still full and organized neatly. The store was originally scheduled to close by June, but the closing sale was postponed by a few months.
I will dive into the mall for the next blog post, but things are not looking good for North Shore Square Mall these days.
The store was fairly empty on my visit which made getting photos very easy.
Here is the clothing department near the mall entrance.
The tool department.

This store probably closed at the end of October or the beginning of November 2014. I was unable to find any sources with the actual closing date.
