On one of my yahoo groups one of the members posted the following:

Sears - Christmas shopping this year.

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amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears hasn't withdrawn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.

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for this

outstanding contribution and we need to show them as A mericans, we do

appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!

  1. I hadn't heard this about Sears. Thank you for posting it. Sears brings back many fond memories of shopping there as a child with my parents. My husband and I buy quite a bit from there now. Most of our appliances are Kenmore so I'm very glad to hear these positive comments about them.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday and leaving the kind comment. Hope you can come back soon!
