Say goodbye to the Sears Tower.

The nation's tallest building is getting a name change today.

It's now the Willis Tower, named for a London-based financial services company.

The firm got the naming rights to the Chicago landmark as part of a lease deal.

But Chicagoans may not be ready let go of the old name.

Teacher Marianne Turk was standing on line yesterday to visit the Skydeck on the 110-story building.

She refuses to call it the Willis Tower.

Turk says the building is "always going to be the Sears Tower."
