NEW YORK--Sears, Roebuck & Co. has won the battle for the former John Wanamaker location in Yonkers, N.Y. Sears will open in the 216,000-square-foot store in October. Sears' initial attempt to take over the lease from Wanamaker's for $12.5 million was derailed in January when the shopping center's landlord offered a higher bid. Woodward & Lothrop, parent company of Wanamker's, is reorganizing in Chapter 11 and must open up lease sales to the public under bankruptcy law. The bid by Brook Shopping Centers Inc., which owns the Cross County shopping center, raised speculation that other retailers, including Federated Department Stores, were interested in the Wanamaker's location. Federated executives, according to reports, even toured the three-level Wanamaker's store in late January with the idea of converting it to a Macy's. Sears, however, was able to reach a deal for the location after it began negotiating directly with the landlord, a Sears spokeswoman said Monday. She declined to provide any details of the agreement. Sears, as reported, wants to increase its presence in the New York metropolitan area. The retailer reportedly is interested in Manhattan locations near Union Square and at A&S Plaza, where Federated is seeking to sell its A&S unit. The Sears spokeswoman declined to comment on those locations Monday.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
