By Philip Haldiman, Editor-in-Chief | Dealmaker

Macerich Co. has bought the Sears department stores at malls in Glendale and Chandler for nearly $50 million.

The deal included $26.94 million for the location at Chandler Fashion Center, which included an auto center and $22.98 million for the location at Arrowhead Towne Center.

It is part of a joint venture involving a number of Sears properties located at Macerich malls.

Macerich, which owns and operates many shopping malls in the western U.S., last week formed the venture with Sears paying $150 million for a 50 percent stake in nine Sears stores.

Sears Holdings has agreed to lease back the stores and continue to operate them, according to the joint venture.

Edward S. Lampert, Chairman and CEO of Sears Holdings said in a press release the retailer will continue to operate the nine stores with minimal impact on their day-to-day operations or the overall shopping experience for customers.
