After months of speculation, one major retailer has announced its return to the Foothills Mall.

Sears ended all speculation as to whether or not the appliance store would return to Foothills after it applied for a building permit Friday to finish the interior of a 10,000 square foot building at 3400 S. College Avenue, reports The Coloradoan.

This new space will be smaller than Sears' original Foothills location, but cements the company's commitment to the Fort Collins community. Along with the rest of the Foothills complex, it is being developed and is owned by Alberta Development Partners.
