Correct. The original Sears catalog store was next to the Jackson Star Market, where K-Mart used to be. Now there is a Hanniford's and Lowe's in that space. When K-Mart was demolished, Sears moved to a smaller space in Patrick's strip mall.

If memory serves me. These were franchise stores. There was one in Plymouth/Rumney near the circle.

Yes! I recall buying “something” from that store…can’t recall what though! Maybe a snowblower or a grill? 😊
