Driver and Vehicle Services office at St. Paul Sears will move to Sunrise Banks

December 1, 2018

Everything must go at the soon-to-be-closed St. Paul Sears, including the Driver and Vehicle Services office.

The privately run DVS, located on Sears second floor, has continued to operate as the department store empties its shelves. At the beginning of January, it will move down the street to the Sunrise Banks building, at 200 University Av. W.

The new office, located in a first-floor suite, will be separate from the bank, said DVS Assistant Manager Jared OReilly. Its more than twice the size of the DVS office at Sears, he said.

It was just a good, close place to where we are now, and its got way more space, he said.

Sears Holdings filed for Chap. 11 bankruptcy protection in October, and will close stores across the country by the end of the year. In the Twin Cities, only the Mall of America location and an appliance outlet in Coon Rapids will remain.

The St. Paul Sears, located on Rice Street near the State Capitol, opened in 1963.
