Concrete from a demolished Sears store in Michigan is being processed and resold. According to a report on Fox 17, more than 20,000 tons of concrete from demolition of the Sears at Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids, Michigan is being recycled.

The store was among several across the country that closed earlier this year. Demolition of the store began in August. The concrete store was built 50 years ago. It will become a Von Maur store later in 2019, the report states.

Recycling of the concrete is taking place on-site six days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It began in mid-October and will take another month to complete. The concrete will be used for building pads, parking lot base and grading for the mall expansion, Fox 17 says.
