Prospective owners who wish to open a new store must have a minimum of $20,000 cash and a positive net worth of at least $100,000.
Established Sears Hometown Stores are available for purchase through existing owners. Negotiations and agreements to purchase an existing store are solely between the owner and prospective buyer. However, Sears Hometown Stores must first grant candidate approval, based on your qualifications to own and operate a Sears Hometown Store. Qualifications will be determined during the recruitment evaluation process.
