At a Sears Hometown store in Barre, Vt., shelves are bare of Craftsman tools, Whirlpool washing machines and Kenmore ovens. With little product to sell, owner Tom Coulter said he is turning customers away daily. When the store has merchandise, the... — read more
Someone who works at Woodfield said they are closing the second floor. the stock there is very low and areas have been condensed. Not sure it will last long.
I was laid off a few months ago when my store closed. I have not been in a Sears since then until I visited Saugus, MA Sears, which I used to frequent. I was shocked at how bad the stock levels were. Clothing racks were spread out to fill space... — read more
One of the biggest Sears in Los Angeles is rumored to close sometime soon: The Boyle Heights store. This was mentioned to me by an employee. I've heard this rumor before but some day that will become true. They'll be closing them quietly one by one... — read more

So they started 'vacation planning' for this year at SHS in Hoffman today. Are you sh–ting me?? Here are three points that NO ONE at SHS talks about. 1) HE is EMPTY. There is no way in hell that TransformCo can support what remains of SHS... — read more
Wasn't the $99 membership going to save TransformCo? The free tire installation of the 4 tires we get in every other week?
The whole company to shut down and no need to have this id–tic page of stupidity and nonsense. Pathetic!!!
I used to be convinced that Sears would be done by the end of this month, February at best. Now I'm starting to change my mind. The way things have been going, I'm starting to think they'll actually try to keep Sears on life support for another year... — read more
I can't figure out how desperate a supplier has to be to entrust Sears with any of its products right at this point.
WSJ got this one right. https://www.wsj.com/articles/old-sears-settles-disputes-with-new-sears-for-more-than-18-million-11578957302 Mark Cohen (former Sears Canada CEO), for one isn't having it. "He's had a puppet board who have never pushed... — read more
Why are you so cheap that unlike every retailer in the world you haven't invested in a communications system that doesn't announce it to everyone in the store over the intercom using codes known to every associate that's worked at Sears in the last... — read more
I don't know how it went down on the Sears side of things, but at Kmart, three years after implementation, the average items scanned at Kmart when from 18 items scanned per minute to 5. That's pretty much Eddie's business acumen in a nutshell.
So did Eddie and the Three Stooges manage to lose less than $2 Billion this year? Surely with less than a quarter less stores to manage they should have managed to lose less than a quarter the money, right? There's a limit to incompetence!
With the closing of the Puerto Rican store, these are the remaining 56 Kmarts now. And yes, I plan to do this after every further announcement, so at most, I'll have to do it 56 More Times: Alabama X Alaska X Arizona — read more
Closings were in big gushing waves are now in little drips. Hopefully the tide is turning and only the best stores are left. Now its time to open new nice modern stores that will be the envy of the industry. Full of relevant product, nice friendly... — read more
So, someone was nice enough to post this in another thread, but since it's a new closing, I thought it deserves a thread. Thanks to the gentleman who found this (FULL CREDIT TO HIM, NOT ME). Another Kmart gone, this one in PR. I feel the dam is... — read more
I have noticed that following the last list, any new closings have just been a store here, a store there, but no 50-100 store closing list. Maybe this is how it ends. Just continued dribs and drabs 1-2 store closings at a time until HE/EL decides... — read more
Kingston and possibly Walnutport this up coming week.These are Pa store's. Can't see how true but was mentioned by Dm in that area.
Any one getting lawn mowers or tractors?
Does anyone have an estimate of the headcount at Hoffman?
Why was the last closing list so small? What exactly is Eddie's angle, here? Most on this page were expecting a huge blowout of stores after Christmas/New Years, but we barely get 1 Kmart, and 2 Sears. The liquidators should be free in about 1... — read more
Heard things are being shaken up in Home Services. Who knows whats going on? Hearing Support Staff layoffs, techs possibly going 1099 (AKA independent kinda like Uber, etc) but I don't know exact details. Anyone have intel?

My store has been seriously under stocked for a while. I get that the company has a hard time convincing the vendors to take it seriously and I’m aware that the delivery issues are much hard to handle compared to the time when Sears had a larger... — read more
Hey Eddie, why don’t you ground your id–t field team and start paying off your dept?
Yet another once profitable and historical Sears location is closing. The store was informed yesterday. This slow drip of closings since the last round was announced a few months ago is getting more and more suspicious. Everyone, get out while you... — read more
Any idea when the district's will be restructured? My DM has like 6 stores. Waste of payroll, ya think?
