Chicago real estate investor Klaff: Jewel is a trophy; will Sears be another?

One of my favorite Chicago Tribune stories from 2014 was a profile of Chicago real estate investor Hersch Klaff. Klaff, a one-time Chicago Cubs bidder, was part of a group that had just bought the Jewel grocery chain, and he told me that he’d like Sears to be his “swan song.”

Hersch Klaff, who once bid for the Cubs, has been an investor in several of the nation's biggest retail deals, including one last year involving Jewel-Osco. (Heather Charles, Chicago Tribune 2013)
