It's about time that they do something with this building other than let the people throw rocks or bricks through the windows. It is such a beautiful building and I can still see my grandparents walking my brothers and sisters into the entrance of the Sears building and buying us shoes. That building has a lot of sentimental memories for a lot of us Memphians who have lived here all their lives and can remember doing the same things that we all did when we were kids and went into the Sears building and just being a part of history. My husband is not from here but even he appreciated all of the history in the buildings that we have here in Memphis. Let's just try to be grateful that someone went into this building and that they are willing to do something with this great piece of history.
