Any idea how that concept is doing?

That Appliances and Mattresses are already slated to shut down around the country tells you all you need to know about this concept. It's already been tried and failed. The sad thing is this grasping at straws with an already failed name taken from 15 years ago and a half vag/half AirBnB logo is the very best that Peter and Leena could come up with after brainstorming for months, and these three locations were what they came up with as their best hope for success after brilliant places like Oakbrook and f---ing Pharr Texas for previous failed concepts.

There's absolutely nothing Peter or Leena can do to turn things around. Eddie should have opened ESL's pockets and paid the vendors, paid the employees, paid the retirees, and not left Sears the world's worst PR disaster not only in the USA but in China too, where he is constantly trashed in the media as the worst owner and CEO in history. He's even got two Presidential candidates and AOC calling him out, making the news cycles and the Drudge Report. As long as Sears is associated with Eddie's bad reputation of screwing every single person he's ever come across, there will be no turnaround, only a transformation into footnote of history casting him as the villain who ruined a historic company that lasted over a century.

Can't be doing any worse than then the less than 8 grand a day a majority of the full line stores are putting up on a regular basis.

So, they sort of playing with house money! That explains!

There is more to that Kansas store than you’d think. They were paid a sum of money to get out of that Kmart and Sears and guaranteed a sum of money but only if they opened another store.

Only Sears would open up a store in Kansas City, which has a Nebraska Furniture Mart a store that does 600 million a year. Who in the Hëll is buying their appliances at Sears

I was hoping that, with this concept Eddie had finally cracked secret code of retailing!

Exactly how you'd expect Appliance & Mattress stores in Smallville Kansas, In the Middle of Nowhere Alaska, and Bumfuck, Louisiana that replaced 1.5 star Full Line Stores to be doing. The format already failed in other locations that have a lot of new home construction. Eddie strategically located these stores so the media wouldn't report on the calculated fail.
