Great Indoors store, Novi, Michigan, now closed.

The Great Indoors was a chain of home decor stores in the United States, founded by Sears in 1997.


The Great Indoors concept was introduced in 1997. Sears believed it had growth potential within the following 10 years. However, the chain did not prove successful and Sears closed stores, starting with a first round in 2005. At one time, The Great Indoors had $550 million in sales.

On February 23, 2012, Sears Holdings Corp. announced it was closing the remaining nine stores.[1]
