    That chain has been in decline for sometime. The worst thing to ever happen to Sears was getting bought out by kmart. All they have done since is close stores left and right, and while some probably needed to be closed I imagine their business plan is partly to blame.

    My Sear's Essentials store has a sign that it's going back to K-Mart. It used to be a K-Mart. It's like, make up your mind already!

    Did Sears Kmart buy Sears or Sears buy Kmart? I do remember at the time alot of people scratching their heads at the move since they were two relatively week companies.

    Personally,I find it scary that it's come down to this.Here in Canada I can remember lots of discount stores that are defunct now.
    kmart.kresges towers,and woolco,which was bought out by walmart years ago.We have another sell out in the works,zellers is being replaced with target.
    95% of all the crap is made in China. My first thought is to stop buying from walmart,but it's beyond that.
    Example...the I-phone ....this is interesting,,,

    Auld Lang Syne,

    Sears was the internet, of the 1800's.
    They perfected the model of home shopping with the support of the Postal System.
    Sadly, neither business model could adapt to the future.
