I received this email today and thought I'd pass it on.


Sears is hurting, too.




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 It's amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears hasn't withdrawn from their commitment.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

How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? 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 called up for active duty.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

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, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

Pass it on.

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 young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

I wonder If K-Mart does the same thing since them & Sears are owned by the same company.

I usually check Sears out first for tools and lawn car equipment and such but about 85% of the time they tell me its only availble "On Line". Well I dont know about anyone else but if I'm in need of a tool, its usually needed that same day, not in a week to 10 days from now.

I've always liked Craftman hand tools. Stay away from their motorcycle batteries though!

I have a new found respect for Sears. Thank you for posting this thread.

Yea man! The Craftsman warranty is rock solid. If you damaged a wrench, say, using a big-a$$ cheater bar...;) Very irresponsible, but bring it in to any Sears and they hand you a new one.
