On Friday, a woman stood on the side of U.S. 70 holding a sign indicating the Sears in Hickory is closing.

In recent months, the company has announced store closures across the country.

On Thursday, USA Today reported a list of 20 Sears locations expected to close in the coming months. The Hickory location was not included on that list.

The manager for the Hickory store did not return a request for comment on Friday.
