“… Lisa Skubal says the closing doesn’t necessarily speak for the local economy.
‘We certainly don’t want to see something like Sears close, regardless of the size,’ said Skubal. ‘But it becomes something we can’t control. They have to do what’s in their best interest. But when we see other businesses in that area develop and grow-the business model isn’t the same for every company. We’re seeing that by growth of new retail establishments in and around that area and in the Cedar Valley.'”
Lisa Skubal is Vice President of Economic Development for the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber.
