FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  February 24, 2012


LOCAL ONLINE PETITION DRIVE STARTED TO SAVE ASHTABULA TOWN CENTER SEARS STORE                                                                                                  SLATED FOR CLOSING


JEFFERSON, OH.  An Ashtabula County businesswoman has started a local petition campaign to reverse the decision to close the Sears store at the Ashtabula Town Center mall. Today, Media Magic Creative Director, Cheryl Dickson-Walker created a petition on the website “”, calling for Sears Holding Company to keep the store open, and save dozens of local jobs.

“Ashtabula County has few big name shopping outlets in the county”, said Dickson-Walker. “Sears is one of the oldest and most trusted names in retail and local residents have depended on shopping this store for appliances, automotive and home improvement tools and goods for decades. The proposed closing of this retail store in Ashtabula Township will devastate our community.”

After monitoring online discussions about the closing, Dickson-Walker decided it was time to fight back, initially, by starting an online petition campaign.

“ It’s up to each of us to stand up and take action and  protest this action by Sears Holding Corporation, said Dickson-Walker. “Corporations, such as Sears, do not like negative publicity, and  petition campaigns, such as this, can and have had a dramatic effect on events, in the past. Just look at what happened when people sent out petitions and protestedwith the Susan B Komen decision  to eliminate Planned Parenthood funding. You can make change.”

Sear’s decision to close the Ashtabula Township store will directly impact the lives of dozens of local people.

“According to news reports, at least 40 people will lose their jobs, the township and the county stands to lose thousands of dollars in tax revenues”, said Dickson-Walker. “Our nearly deserted Mall may not survive the loss of another anchor store. This would be disastrous economically for our struggling community. We need our local elected officials to join us in working to get Sears back in discussions about closing this store and saving local jobs. We are not helpless- we can make things happen.”

The “Save our Ashtabula Sears” petition can be signed by going to Change,org’s website: . The petition is being circulated by email and on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other local political forums and blogs.
