"They've been part of the fabric of the community," said Dodgeville Mayor Todd Novak.
With the headquarters in Dodgeville
, Lands' End
has been a staple in the city for over 30 years.
"It's the city's largest employer," said Novak
For the past 12 years, Sears
owned the company.
But today, Mayor Todd Novak says Lands' End is being brought back to its roots
"Making them independent I think takes them back to where they started," said Novak
"It helps local businesses, it helps economy, it helps housing in the area, so I think overall the city of Dodgeville
and Lands' End
is tied together so I think it's a win for both of us if they grow," said Novak
