Sears is an American based chain of department stores founded in 1893 by Alvah Curtis Roebuck and Richard Warren Sears. Formerly it was based in Sears Tower in Chicago and now it is headquartered in Hoffman Estates in Illinois. Initially, the Corporation started as a mail ordering catalog company and then started opening different retail centers in 1925.
