If you haven’t been to Brookfield Square in a while, you’ll be surprised by the changes. The Boston Store closed this year (2018) and it’s empty. The Sears store at the south end of the mall has been torn down to make room for new businesses to be added. Even those major retailers have disappeared there’s still a lot going on at the Square. Several new bars and restaurants have been added and a company has purchased the rights to the Boston Store name and have expressed plans to re-open the Brookfield location.
