Killeen Sears

The recently closed Sears in the Killeen Mall is seen from the air in late March 2019. It was the first store to open in the mall in 1981.

Residents are vocal about what they see as the greatest deficiencies in the fluctuating local market, but local experts say demand tells a different tale.

While she enjoys the variety of different restaurants to eat at, Killeen resident Artia Perry said she would like a greater assortment of local attractions.

We had a very nice fun, go karts, miniature closed. I don't know what the reason was, it seemed to always be busy in the spring and summer....With the way internet shopping is now, it is hard to please customers and be like Sears and Penney's once was, unfortunately. ..and....There are plenty of movie theaters, pizza places, bowling alleys that are under utilized, parks, and rec leagues. Adults and kids just don't participate like they used to. Too easy to sit in front of the tv and play their games...unfortunately.
