It looks like the lights themselves changed from a flat type to cobraheads. Though it might just be the picture. Man I'm bored

According to the date on Google Earth, this image is from August 2013:

Sears Now Open, Deer Park, Washington.  Kind of a smallish store.

Looks like a hometown or dealer store.

Sears was really pushing for those in the 2000s/early 2010s.

When Sears came out with the Hardware-only stores, I liked that concept as many occupied vacant former grocery stores in my area that moved into newer, larger "megastore" buildings. They were in convenient locations.

Sears should have shifted their focus entirely to the items they are currently most known for - Craftsman tools and appliance sales - and shed the rest of the business while they still had time.  In recent years the only real reason I entered a Sears was to buy tools, mowers and appliances.  Selling off their most iconic brands like Craftsman and Kenmore was/is a terrible idea and pretty much will shut the door on Sears.  Eddie Lampert should be tried for his crimes against retail.
