I saw a story not long ago. Sears picked as one the brands that will disappear in 2012.
I seem to remember reading that. I think it was CNN / Money online where I saw it.
I know they built their name on tools (craftsman, which carry a lifetime warranty, if I am not mistaken) and appliances, which others have noted have great service.
I seem to remember that maybe it was easy to get a credit card there back when it was difficult to get credit cards. I think that might have been part of the allure.
But now, what do they stand for? Low prices? Superior Service? Latest trends? Biggest selection?
Kind of worries me in a way when I see big brands like sears and goodguys and circuit city and compusa drop the ball like they did; makes me think that if the big corporations can't really get it together, then small fry like myself must always be on the edge of oblivion...
