Dillard’s to close at DeSoto, Sarasota Square malls

BRADENTON — The Dillard’s store at the DeSoto Square mall will close, a corporate official has confirmed.

Julie Bull, director of investor relations at Dillards, said the stores at DeSoto Square as well as at Westfield Sarasota Square Mall will close.

Bull said she did not have specific details regarding closure dates nor the number of employees at either location.

“It is probably safe to say both locations will close by the end of the year,” Bull said. “We will be working to place as many of our associates as possible in other locations.”
