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.

Nobody’s Email: A Patriotic Reason to Shop at Sears

Nobody Gets Email:

Here’s an uplifting email that I wanted to post, because I didn’t know this, and I feel a bit better today, because I was at the MALL today, and brought two new front tires from the Sears automotive department. Not only did they get finished an hour ahead of time, they were the most reasonably priced.Sears

Sears treat the veterans better than Obama treats them. Maybe we should just get rid of our politicians and presidents, and vote in Sears to run the country.

Or Disney. Or Apple.

Anyway, thanks to my liberal friend JR, I will shop there more often.


I know I needed this reminder, since Sears isn’t always my first choice. It’s amazing when you think of how long the wars have lasted, and Sears hasn’t withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

What commitment you say?

How does Sears treat its employees who are serving in our military?   By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being on active duty.Soldier

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all employees who are serving. I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least once this year.    Be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

I decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it’s cheaper at that store.

This is their answer to my e-mail:

Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears. The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.  Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our men and women can make. This is the “least” we can do for them.  We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Please pass this on. Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our Military!!!
