I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up...Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution.

Suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.

Pass it on.

I decided to check it out before I sent it forward. I sent the following email to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this email and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your store. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item even if it was cheaper at the other store.
Here is their answer to my email.....................


Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.

The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback. Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Please pass this on to friends. Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!!!!!!!!! It's Verified By Snopes.com : http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/sears.asp

We have always been pleased with our purchases from Sears as well. Two weeks ago we had to purchase a new washing machine. My wife had narrowed her choices down to a Maytag and a Kenmore. Feature-wise and price-wise, both machines were about the same. We opted to buy the Maytag because of delivery schedule and installation. If we had known about this policy of Sears re their personnel called up to serve in the military, we would have purchased the Kenmore hands down. There would have been no comparative shopping done.

we try to buy Craftsman tools (esp powertools) whenever possible. the lifetime guarantee and being made in the USA makes the extra few dollars worth it.

When it comes to Craftsman tools, Fuzzy, there's no comparison shopping done at our house, either. :beer:

I like Sears, but I don't think I'd work for them, especially after the bullshit I went through trying to get a job (didn't get it either). But damn good comapny otherwise.
