Ours last year was within the tool department kinda between men’s-shoes and tools..and was set up by late September last year.. This year that space is overrun with men’s clothing now, s-t-r-e-c-h-e-d out to make it look like there’s lots of it... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
When do the closing stores get their vacation time paid? I thought it was at the end when you are terminated?
Their dumping everything for way below cost...what a great go forward plan and calling it a "blowout" event.....no you're just trying to liquidate the company before the year is up it's pretty obvious, you have nothing to offer anyone looking for a... — read more
Is the Kmart in Hollywood Florida saved from closing? They have added some new merchandise. There are no Halloween or Christmas items yet. Does that mean anything.
What ever happened to that leaked Home and Life store near Boston that was posted a while ago? The link was taken down, and the phone number is just a dead SHC number
Why are the key west Florida stores still open and mainland closing
After this round of closings when will the next ones start and will stores be added to this round before they start on 9 19 I hear more added soon but unsure if our store is good until after october. Do they just add on to this round as needed... — read more
Wondering if anyone can confirm or deny this. First is what I hear is that the rest of the "top" Kmarts are going to be converted into smaller Sears stores instead. Second, I heard that the Guam store being bought out by the Aussies was a false... — read more
Eddie has had a plan for a very long time. As of late, SHOS owners are being squeezed out with lack of product, Bankruptcy news of SHC, and the public’s perception that ALL Sears stores are going away. SHOS no can no longer order Craftsman ... — read more
Another FLS gone... https://searsholdings.com/media/company-statements
I can't believe this has been allowed. How can a company get away with letting stores degrade for over a decade only to close them in waves, then come out of bankruptcy and begin the process all over again. Can anyone name one single thing that... — read more
That should scare you if you work for a vulnerable company. This guy will get $7 Billion. Yep, $7B in tax loss credits when he scuttles the ship. Then he will do exactly as planned. He will buy up an undervalued struggling company with that $7... — read more
Does anyone know the name of the liquidation company that goes around closing Sears and Kmart stores?
No go forward plan. It's over for the company. The rumor mill is going today and word is it's winding down fast. This will be coming faster than you think.
Eddie ought to be ashamed of the way he has conducted the closing down of Kmart. Suppliers, associates, and customers deserved much better. If you can't make the stores look decent then you have no business being open to the public and exposing... — read more
You know how they make sure you can't make jack on commission unless you sell 10 grand in protection plans a month ...so you get paid mainly on the store contribution which you get 9% of plus 1% of the sale ...well Eddie includes the delivery cost... — read more
A month ago, there was a HUGE number of Vice President and Director positions open that will never be filled. Now there's just the VP of Finance and a handful of 4 Director positions left open, including 3 software engineering and 1 Investigations. ... — read more
Why would they stop the sale of protection plans during liquidation if Sears was still an up and running company they go through the manufacturer the first year anyway so why would they stop the sell of protection plans?
We probably have a semi truck trailer and a half of junk. Literally. Our store is huge. Our warehouse alone is almost as big as a smaller Sears store and there are lots of huge rooms in our warehouse packed with anything you could imagine. There are... — read more
Is it still operational - worked with some folks back when it was getting setup.
Federal Realty Investment Trust FRT recently announced acquisition of the Kmart lease at Assembly Square Marketplace in Somerville, MA, for $14.5 million. The move comes as part of the company’s efforts to gain control and capitalize on future... — read more
Are there any Kmart stores left (either just announced for closure or "go forward") with an operational K Cafe or Little Caesars? I haven't seen one in years, but I think they might still exist somewhere.
When Kmart came out of bankruptcy the first time, they could have become a success. They had profits, a customer base, and the cash and financial resources to build new stores. Eddie is either a failed retailer or a cheat. Either he deliberately... — read more
Will they receive Christmas merchandise?
Now that we can't sell home warranties how much longer will this call center be open?
What did Eddie expect? Put no money in stores for decades and then wonder why they fell behind? I guess all those other retailers across the entire world wouldn't know as much as Eddie. What do they know, doing silly things like investing in their... — read more
Does anyone know when the liquidators will arrive for this latest round of Kmart closures/when the stores will cease normal operations and begin the closing sales?
Rumors feeding rumors. LOL. 100 stores closing? One news source quoted the USA Today which referenced thelayoff.com. Wow. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2019/08/31/kmart-sears-store-closings-more-locations-shutter-end-2019/2168435001/
The reason I stopped, I felt bad for the cashier. She made me feel bad too because her stats would be negatively affected by me not wanting to give my data in exchange for being a "member". This happened about 3 times in a row. I finally said to... — read more
you can get a wards credit card and they have electronics. wards.com. There is still hope for a handful of people at Eddies funshop.
We didn’t do enough KYM’s and MET’s!!!
Except we'll close all the stores where you live.
After all of the stores are closed ?
What do you think...
I think the answer is that we all knew that this is over. Yet we chose to stay. I mean, not many of us started looking for a new job aggressively after sears went private. What did we think that a miracle was going to happen?
Perhaps Kmart could have done well if for all these closings they had opened just one new store in each area with the closings. It could have been a modern retail building in the current shopping areas that would replace 3 or 4 old stores that were... — read more
All the money in the world will not matter in the end. In the end he will be known as the man who allowed not one, but two American icons to fail at the same time. It really is stunning that the two biggest retailers one generation ago are both... — read more
