Nobody Wins: Sears Will Be a Distant Memory

Nobody Wins

Pretty sad I thought, as my husband and I drove past the last closing Sears within 60 miles of our home.

The sign said, “60% off!” Right. I’ve been to too many store closings to even bother. They never mark anything down, the sign just says it’s marked down.

Still, I’ve shopped at Sears so many times in my life I can’t even remember then all. Then Amazon came in, and Wal-Mart, who had all the best deals from the politicians, and they drove Sears out of business.

Sear was the only place you could buy decent tools for the guys. That went.

After they bought K-Mart, all the stores stopped looking nice, and started looking like the Salvation Army.

Wikipedia says they just couldn’t compete with Amazon and Wal-Mart. Tell me, do YOU think Wal-Mart is actually better than Sears? Have you ever seen a better drying machine at Wal-Mart?

Me neither.

I guess since Sears was always attached to some malls, and all the malls are closing, it was bound to happen.

I call it controlled destruction.

After we passed the mall where the Sears was closing down, we passed a big building recently put not far away. From the highway I saw a big sign which read: Logistics: Now hiring. All benefits.

Mmmmm…Logistics. I wonder….

I went home and google it.

Yep. It’s an Amazon warehouse. You would THINK they’d just put AMAZON on the building but this is the Midwest where middle class jobs are very hard to find. A lot of people around here would be embarrassed to say they worked at Amazon. They can say, “I work at Logistics” and nobody would know.

Really.

I’m going to miss Sears. Nobody Wins when the ONLY place you will be able to shop is Amazon or Wal-Mart.

And guess who owns the Sears Building in Chicago?

Blackstone. 

Check THEM out. There’s not much they do not own.
