Leon’s taking over Sears Home store in Langley

Leon's Furniture Ltd. will take over lease of current Sears Home location as of June 1

The closing of the Sears Home store in Langley should help funnel more traffic into the Sears department store at Willowbrook Shopping Centre.

Sears Canada announced on Tuesday that the Langley location was one of Sears Home stores across the country which will be assigned to Leon’s Furniture Ltd.

“Our focus is on converting each and every customer at stores with less efficient footprints into customers of our more efficient and best performing stores,” said Brandon Stranzl, the executive chairman of Sears Canada Inc.

“These actions will drive more business over less square footage and will make Sears Canada a stronger company.”

The Sears Home stores sell furniture, mattresses and major appliances, but those are also available at the Sears department store.

The two stores are a few blocks apart.

“With the onset of people becoming more comfortable with online (shopping) and everything else, what we are looking to do is consolidate the space,” said Vincent Power, corporate communications for Sears Canada.

“We are trying to consolidate that space where we can, compel those shoppers who currently shop at the home store to shop at the full line store.

“We are just trying to make the whole space in Langley more efficient.”

Leon’s takes over the Sears Home store location effective June 1.

The Canadian company also owns The Brick.
