Columbus is reportedly among the two finalists for the new corporate headquarters of the Sears Holding Corporation.

The company oversees some 4,000 retail outlets around the country. A package of tax incentives from its current home of Illinois is set to expire, and the Associated Press reports executives are considering a move to either Columbus or Austin, Texas.

A company spokeswoman confirms they’ve toured two prospective sites, but she declined to name the cities.

The Sears headquarters employees about 6,200 people.
