The Michigan Economic Development Corp. as well as Wayne and Oakland Counties are trying to lure Sears into relocating its Headquarters from the suburbs of Chicago to the Detroit area. The move could mean about 5,000 jobs for Michigan residents. 

According to the Chicago Tribune, Sears, and other large companies, are  unhappy with new income taxes imposed by Illinois.

Two potential sites in metro Detroit are being offered to Sears. One is Regent Court, a Ford Motor office building in Dearborn. The other is the former Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan complex in Southfield, which is on the market as BCBSM moves employees to downtown Detroit.

North Carolina, Texas, New Jersey and Tennessee are also under consideration.
