Unprecedented failure

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

This will not end that quickly

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

The Most Important Metric - Shop Your Way

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.

It's the most profitable time. . . of the the Year!

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!

Maybe there won’t be another list?

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

Why small closing list?

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

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
