After a temporary closure last week, Sears Penticton is back in business.

The former owner is not continuing operations, however Sears Canada is now operating the store which was back to business as usual as of Oct. 24.

The closure amounted to four days, as Sears Canada quickly got a new lease in place and reopened within a week.

“We’re definitely here to stay in the Penticton market,” said Jan Destobel, who is currently managing the store.

She had no comment as to why the former owner chose not to continue operations.
