Do you think it will be announced by Dec 2nd that all stores will close and liquidation will start? All stores gone by February?

Posted this on another thread, but here is the street view of the Kingston PA Kmart. Wow, just wow, it looks like an abandoned set for a B-horror movie. It looks like a sad, desolate, ghost... — read more
Who would acquire the remaining PR and USVI stores? USVI especially, there is nothing comparable on either island to KMart, and it will be a disruption for the population if those 4 stores close. Would Wal-Mart finally jump over from PR and... — read more
Any chance Westfarmers acquires the Guam Store along with Global ownership of the KMart IP? We already know that Wesfarmers is expanding into the US with their Anko stores in Seattle, but even if they have no desire to reintroduce the KMart name in... — read more
This is becoming a PITA to deal with and no answers from anyone. What's going on?
Make a prediction and tell us what you think about Sears Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Buzzard here, still circling. I posted about the Burbank store the other day. Another California store not on the closing list is not accepting gift cards. It gives the same error message as the stores who are on the closing list, saying that the... — read more
Lease due, no product coming in, sending transfers out and members questioning. Stress of not knowing what the actual plan is to go forward. If you are offered work eslsewhere please take it. There is no way remaining will last.
Any news on A&E?
Entire building is down 20% of its crew! Some groups barely get 32 hours per week. Building is worth millions. Some groups are down to less than 10 people and multiple supervisors left? hmm .
And I didn't see it on the latest closure list. I was in the Buena Park store trying to use a gift card, and this store is on the closure list. When you try to use it, the system spits out a message saying that the card type is invalid. Manager... — read more
Anyone remember the BS the blew about being able to communicate now that we were out of BK. LOL. There has been even less communication of the last 90-120 days than ever before. I vividly remember how all the leaders were patting each other on... — read more
Much to my surprise and disappointment, OKC lost its Hometown store. That means there are zero Sears for at least 50 miles from a very major and growing metro area. Unbelievable. This is not how you run a go-forward transformation plan.
It’s quite troubling that Leena munjal, who has done more harm to the health of this organization than any individual, save Eddie himself, continues to be recognized or endorsed for various awards by organizations that clearly do not do their... — read more
Lets think about this a little bit. EL bought sears and kmart out of bankruptcy and the best parent company name they could think of was Transform HoldCo? For someone who claims to be a marketing genius with programs like SYW this seems like a... — read more
I get it. I was laid off in August after many many years. It is awful, but I knew as you did too that with far fewer stores, they would never need all of us. It is hard because many of us worked at Sears for forever and remember a different company... — read more
I have a inside source at abacus advisors and the plan is to shut all remaining Sears and Kmarts no later than 3/2020. The reason why they did not close the remaining stores this year is there arent enough liquidators to do the job.
We continue to pay a company to do Mystery Shops... They are useless. Puts undo stress on stores. We should just be happy a store is open. Traveling by RVP's and DM's..... We are broke BUT we still let so many people travel for no reason. Years ago... — read more
246 people across all businesses. Here's the article: https://www.businessinsider.com/sears-layoffs-his-corporate-workers-amid-store-closings-2019-11
There's something called the Prisoner's Dilemma, and anyone with a high school education at some point should have heard that the most successful strategy called Tit-for-Tat. In the Bible, it's an eye for eye, a tooth for a tooth. You scratch my... — read more
There are none.....Are they out of that business altogether?
Really surprised not many posts or comments about layoffs4 at HE
So when will the net closings be announced?
How many people are left in Hoffman? Are all the buildings (except G, F, and E) still open? When I was let go in April 2019 (after working there 20 years) it seemed like less than 700 associates were left in the whole complex. For those waiting for... — read more
It is so stupid to play christmas music in a Kmart that is closing. It makes it more depressing. What do they think it will cheer people up?
What areas were impacted and how many?
Anyone know what happened in SF today? How will this affect the stores?
What can small businesses learn from the largest online retailer? While the company was still growing, Amazon, like Walmart before it, focused on building a strong foundation. It paid little attention to stock price, and funneled almost all its... — read more
What teams/how many will be affected? Anyone know any numbers?
Add The Mall of America to the list of people suing Eddie Lampert. It seems the Bloomington, Minnesota-based mall wants its empty three-story space back from Lampert, who pays-ready for this?-$10 annual rent. Mall of America owners are... — read more
Keep hearing big layoffs in HE tomorrow. Best way to know is what "activity" is happening the day before...
So they are doing reindeer runs in closing stores: WOW!!! And why even bother, this is every stores last holiday. Guess that RVP and those DM's have to justify their existence.
Pink slipper was right in his post from last month. Just off in the timing.
The true sign that TransformCo's run out of money and that Eddie really has no idea what the bumblef–k he's doing
