Sears Holdings announced that the company has signed a long-term lease with Thor Equities to occupy 25,000 square feet in the historic Phelan Building, officially establishing a new San Francisco apparel office.

"We are thrilled that Sears has chosen San Francisco for its West Coast apparel office," said Mayor Gavin Newsom. "San Francisco offers leading retailers like Sears Holdings the perfect location to recruit and retain the creative talent that drives the apparel industry. Sears' decision not only brings new jobs and investment to the City, but also anchors Union Square with the offices of one of the largest retailers in the nation."

"Sears Holdings believes that by creating a presence in California, we will greatly enhance our ability to attract talent within one of the country's centers of excellence for the apparel industry. After an exhaustive search we know we have found the right location to meet the needs of our apparel business as we continue to grow and we are excited to be a part of the San Francisco Community. I also invite anyone who wants to be part of this unique opportunity and to be part of what we are building to apply," said John Goodman EVP, Apparel and Home, Sears Holdings.

Sears Holdings' West Coast apparel office will be located on the sixth floor at 760 Market Street – site of Senator Phelan's original office.

"We're proud to welcome members of the company's apparel team to what has rapidly become one of the hottest properties in downtown San Francisco," said Joseph Sitt, CEO of Thor Equities. "The Phelan building -- a beloved San Francisco historic landmark with a host of traditional office spaces -- has undergone a classic restoration and reinterpretation with open floor plans of creative spaces to better suit the modern office community."

Goodman added, "This office continues Sears Holdings' commitment to enhancing our apparel offerings and business. Along with the new space in San Francisco, we operate our design offices in Lower Manhattan, and have a team of associates in our Hoffman Estates Support Center dedicated to giving our customers more reasons to shop our stores and our Web sites everyday."

Sears Holdings' San Francisco office will include merchandising positions across both the Sears and Kmart apparel formats.
