“I guess Concord Mall isn’t completely on its way out after all,” the Facebook post read. “The landlord is telling tenants that Primark is going where Sears once was.”
DelawareLive.com called Concord Mall to get the truth.
“No,” said mall manager Tom Dahlke, Our was the third that he has received about the rumorm he said. “Completely and absolutely BS.”
“Sears still owns its building, and what happens is up to them,” he said, adding that he believes that Sears would only be interested in selling the building and not renting it.
That said, “Primark would not be a bad choice” for the vacant department store. Sears closed itstore in 2020.
Primark is a clothing retailer that began in Ireland in 1969 as Penneys but it doesn’t use that elsewhere because of JCPenney. It also sells beauty products, homeware and accessories.
