My name is Michael Romelotti and I work for Sears Holdings Corp Real Estate Group(SHC Realty) under a recent intiaitive to unlock and maximize the underlying leasehold/real estate value of the operating store portfolio, through sub-leasing, vis-a-vis downsizing the K-mart/Sears Box . Therefore, due to my signifiant background in Supermarket real estate debvelopment, my sole appointed directive is to attract supermarket retailers to the SHC Realty enterprise; this initiative involves other potential reatil categories, but I'm charged only with the grocery piece.
I invite any independent regional or national chain to contact me for further discussion. As all of you know, there are many markets that have high barrier to entry dynamics: high cost of real estate; lack of real estate inventory; topographical challenges, etc... As we control some of the best retail real estate in the country, our portfolio can diminish these challenges. The optimum opportunity is for a 20,000 - 40,000 sq. ft. grocery box, thereby allowing us to continue the existing K-mart/Sears operation.
Therefore, I invite all inquiries from all grocers around the country.
I look forward to responding to comments and questions.

I just sent out a message to the group, but I'll repost it here along with the picture. I am just not all that familiar on how to work social networking sites.
Regardless, the site plan is below. As you can see, I have a Food Lion logo on it, but that's because we had a Bloom going in there, but it didn't happen. The grocery is away from the in-line retail. What do you think about that? I can see advantages to being attached and also being apart from the in-line. What do you prefer?
Do you guys know of any independent grocers that would like to see a site in Loudon County, Virginia? Those photos look like the kind of store I'd like to have anchor our retail development. The site is across from a town square and in front of 650 newly-built homes.
