After decades of running the Brenham Sears store, Larry and Elaine Hobgood are selling their franchise to a man who has a history of improving sales at the long time general department store.
Doug Setzer has owned the Sears store in Seguin for 12 years and more recently took over the store in New Braunfels. Setzer says he will take over the Brenham franchise on Saturday after some negotiations with theHobgoods.
Setzer said he ‘walked into the Sears store in Seguin to buy a lawnmower and walked out with the store. He said both the Seguin and New Braunfels stores were considered underperforming.
The Brenham Sears store is at 2507 Becker Drive. Setzer says for now there are no major changes planned but he expects to succeed very well with the store.
