Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
More Sears will be announced as well as Kmart. Trolls will be shocked as to how many. I was.
Versus the previous record of 108 million in 2017. Folks, it's only April and 2018 is 2/3 of the way to 2017's total. 2018 will be WAAY worse and there's no light at the end of the tunnel for 2019 either, with so many retailer's bonds coming due... read more
Then why doesn't eddie have an account. Also I have a friend who works for citi and said that there is no record of him having a sears credit card.
It's clearly not true! While we're on it, doesn't that apply to every retail store? There are regional chains that are very successful and not present to everyone in the United States, there are big national chains that aren't everywhere. If a town... read more
Anyone have any news on the next round of Hoffman layoffs? It was supposed to happen in April
Does anybody have a link to a list of all nine closing stores that were announced? The best I could find was seven, so now I am trying to figure out what the final two are.
Man, that was the best! I wonder if radio stations would play it if requested? Free advertising for our beloved Kmart! That song needs to become the Kmart anthem because Kmart is a survivor and like all survivors, it is going to thrive. The Kmart... read more
Circuit city, Toys R Us, HH Gregg and countless others.... Kmart still here, still present, and still saving millions of customers millions of dollars everyday since 1962. God bless Kmart!!
Fact 1: Kmart is still present in nearly all markets within the United States \ Fact 2: Kmart is massively cheaper than competitors Fact 3: The Shop Your Way program offers massive savings Fact 4: Most of the people who say negative things about... read more
So far 13 new Sears Hometown stores opened this year. A new one opened on April 5, 2018 in Witchita Falls, Texas This is a winning format for Sears. This brand focused on 'hometowns' and Kmart as a king returned to its throne! I really think the tide... read more
Seriously, one of the articles on the latest closing announcement has a guy express his shock at finding out his store is closing. How? How can you work at Sears at this time and not be completely aware of the fact that there is no such a thing as... read more
http://www.businessinsider.com/sears-closing-9-stores-list-2018-4 And this is just a preliminary list.
I work in one of the stores that is set to be sold May 1st, Just trying to find out who actually told the employees and made it official there store was closing (District or Store mgmt.) and what were the employees options as far as continued... read more
Received a letter today, April 16, 2018, that contained the following information about Sears Holdings Pension Plan 1. "On April 2, 2018, the Plan's actuaries certified the Plan's funded status to be above 80%. Because the funded status has exceeded... read more
Please note that for some items like socks and briefs they are packaged in different quantities for each retailer (hmmm I wonder if that's to make price comparison difficult) so for briefs and socks the price will be adjusted per unit so the same... read more
Is someone off their meds or special needs? Kmart and Sears are DEAD....they are slowly liquidating and past the point of no return. They are not going to remodel stores and put bathrooms up front, or change the layout of their stores, or add more of... read more
Hatchimal nursery: $19.60 Kmart- sold in store and online by Kmart $20.40 on Walmart via 3rd party and out of stock, don't know if available in store $22.99 Target- sold in store and online by Target Hatchimal Spring Basket with 6 hathimals: $14.99... read more
I've asked over and over for examples of items that are sold at both stores to price compare and yet all those claiming over and over again that Kmart is more expensive refuse to give me a basket of goods to compare. Now, why do I think if I choose... read more
I haven't seen any news or anyone posting about 1438, but I just got intel that store is closing. Its one of California stores in a big city. I believe its a leased so maybe sales weren't keeping up with lease and overall expenses. This comes from an... read more
More store closures about to be announced. Stores that are profitable but worth more to sell.
I only stepped foot in Kmart once in my life. I had to go to the bathroom but the bathrooms were way in the back. I suggest Kmart redesigned their stores so their bathrooms are near the cash register’s and/or front door. If they re-designed their... read more
Kmart could come back stronger than ever, never underestimate the power of price in the discount world. It is Kmart's biggest advantage at the present. Bigger ebacks have happened. In 1962 Woolworth and S.S. Kresge were Goliaths and people would have... read more
I just want to say that as a Kmart fan I'm so very thankful and proud of all the employees of Kmart who have worked through thick and thin to make Kmart what it is. Kmart is a survivor and as we know survivors often end up much stronger once through... read more
We hear all the time people saying that they didn't know Kmart still existed and it made me think of the huge potential for Kmart. There are so many millions of potential customers who haven't been in Kmart for over a decade and they are potential... read more

About a billion dollars of Sears pension funds were 'de-risked' last year by buying annuities from MetLife. That will fully fund 71,000 retirees, with no Sears stock involved anymore... read more

This is simply not true! Then when proof was requested... a statement that it would be too difficult to determine if Kmart was 100+ miles from most people in the country, so basically the assertion that it was 100+ miles away from most people in the... read more
Clearly that horrible lie has been defeated and it has been proven that Kmart is not more expensive than other discounters, in fact it is cheaper. Over and over again we hear that Kmart is expensive and yet when proof is requested, all we get is a... read more
Hundreds of posts saying horrible things about Sears and then when anyone says anything positive then all of a sudden everyone is saying that this board is about layoffs and other things shouldn't be discussed. Hypocrites! Also very clear that these... read more
So many people are trying to run this company down. Share your stories about some of the unique products that you found at Kmart and the great deal you got on it and what it would have cost at Target/Walmart. The only way to combat lies is to shine... read more
This is a horrible and destructive lie. We see claims over and over again that Kmart has high prices when compared to competitors and yet over and over there isn't a shread of evidence given. If you are so convinced that Kmart has higher prices then... read more
All the little snowflakes complain that Kmart is more expensive than competitors or that competitors have nicer stores. I guess this is the result of years of snowflakes. The snowflakes can't get a good deal at a discounter unless the environment is... read more
I’ve been made an offer to join shop your way in Chicago which I understand is a division of sears, when researching the company’s I came across this board. What do ya think?
The largest Sears store in the Phoenix market is closing. Sears decided not to renew the lease. Last day will be 7/15
Sears will be in Chicago no more. I guess that's more telling about the current situation of the company than anything. Sears Holdings will later this year close its last department store in Chicago, where the company was based for more than 100... read more
