Sears will stay at the Foothills Mall. After months of negotiations and some help from Fort Collins City Manager Darin Atteberry, Sears and mall owner Alberta Development Partners have agreed on a new site for the store at the redeveloped shopping center. Sears will move to a new location along College Avenue. They will be allowed to stay in their current store until the new one is built. If the two sides couldn’t come to an agreement, and the city refused to use eminent domain, Alberta was prepared to walk away from the project, jeopardizing millions in sales tax revenue for the city of Fort Collins.
