Tell you what, Sears. If you can somehow buy up the domain name "expedia.com", I'll definitely use your travel agency by accident.

This works pretty well in Europe. Both El Corte Ingles and Marks and Spencer have 'vacations' desks. I always have to wonder why Americans have the fascination with trying to build their own vacation when they know nothing of the lands they are going to visit. It seems to me you're just setting yourselves up for failure; bad enough you're running around with t-shirt, camera around the neck, water bottle in one hand with map in the other, and a neon-colored fanny pack, now you're off the beaten path trying to find some no-name hotel in a favela that you found for cheap on the internet.

One of my favorite things as a kid was leafing through a replica of Sears & Roebucks' 1908 catalog. Thousands and thousands of things. You could get anything from an individual bolt, to a tractor, to a house (in kit form, delivered by railcar). I think they even sold insurance.

If you know how to do research on the internet you can book an awesome vacation without the travel agent. And TripAdvisor is reliable enough as a jumpoff point to find the good hotels. I'm pretty happy with the summer vacation to Europe I built out and I'd be surprised if an agent could have booked it any better.

Even an annoying English twat figured out why your way sucks:

"Well I saw your adverts in the paper and I've been on package tours several times you see, and I decided that this was for me. Yes I quite agree I mean what's the point of being treated like sheep. What's the pointof going abroad if you're just another tourist carted around in buses surrounded by sweaty mindless oafs from Kettering and Coventry in their cloth caps and their cardigans and their transistor radios and their Sunday Mirrors, complaining about the tea - "Oh they don't make it properly here, do they, not like at home" - and stopping at Majorcan bodegas selling fish and chips and Watney's Red Barrel and calamares and two veg and sitting in their cotton frocks squirting Timothy White's suncream all over their puffy raw swollen purulent flesh 'cos they "overdid it on the first day." And being herded into endless Hotel Miramars and Bellvueses and Continentales with their modern international luxury roomettes and draught Red Barrel and swimming pools full of fat German businessmen pretending they're acrobats forming pyramids and frightening the children and barging into queues and if you're not at your table spot on seven you miss the bowl of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, the first item on the menu of International Cuisine, and every Thursday night the hotel has a bloody cabaret in the bar, featuring a tiny emaciated dago with nine-inch hips and some bloated fat tart with her hair brylcreemed down and a big arse presenting Flamenco for Foreigners. And then some adenoidal typists from Birmingham with flabby white legs and diarrhoea trying to pick up hairy bandy-legged wop waiters called Manuel and once a week there's an excursion to the local Roman Remains to buy cherryade and melted ice cream and bleeding Watney's Red Barrel and one evening you visit the so called typical restaurant with local colour and atmosphere and you sit next to a party from Rhyl who keep singing "Torremolinos, torremolinos" and complaining about the food - "It's so greasy isn't it?" - and you get cornered by some drunken greengrocer from Luton with an Instamatic camera and Dr. Scholl sandals and last Tuesday's Daily Express and he drones on and on about how Mr. Smith should be running this country and how many languages Enoch Pow ell can speak and then he throws up over the Cuba Libres. And sending tinted postcards of places they don't realise they haven't even visited to "All at number 22, weather wonderful, our room is marked with an 'X'. Food very greasy but we've found a charming little local place hidden away in the back streets where they serve Watney's Red Barrel and cheese and onion crisps and the accordionist plays 'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner'." And spending four days on the tarmac at Luton airport on a five-day package tour with nothing to eat but dried BEA-type sandwiches and you can't even get a drink of Watney's Red Barrel because you're still in England and the bloody bar closes every time you're thirsty and there's nowhere to sleep and the kids are crying and vomiting and breaking the plastic ash-trays and they keep telling you it'll only be another hour although your plane is still in Iceland and has to take some Swedes to Yugoslavia before it can load you up at 3 a.m. in the bloody morning and you sit on the tarmac till six because of "unforeseen difficulties", i.e. the permanent strike of Air Traffic Control in Paris - and nobody can go to the lavatory until you take off at 8, and when you get to Malaga airport everybody's swallowing "enterovioform" and queuing for the toilets and queuing for the armed customs officers, and queuing for the bloody bus that isn't there to take you to the hotel that hasn't yet been finished. And when you finally get to the half-built Algerian ruin called the Hotel del Sol by paying half your holiday money to a licensed bandit in a taxi you find there's no water in the pool, there's no water in the taps, there's no water in the bog and there's only a bleeding lizard in the bidet. And half the rooms are double booked and you can't sleep anyway because of the permanent twenty-four-hour drilling of the foundations of the hotel next door - and you're plagues by appalling apprentice chemists from Ealing pretending to be hippies, and middle-class stockbrokers' wives busily buying identical holiday villas in suburban development plots just like Esher, in case the Labour government gets in again, and fat American matrons with sloppy-buttocks and Hawaiian-patterned ski pants looking for any mulatto male who can keep it up long enough when they finally let it all flop out. And the Spanish Tourist Board promises you that the raging cholera epidemic is merely a case of mild Spanish tummy, like the previous outbreak of Spanish tummy in 1660 which killed half London and decimated Europe - and meanwhile the bloody Guardia are busy arresting sixteen-year-olds for kissing in the streets and shooting anyone under nineteen who doesn't like Franco. And then on the last day in the airport lounge everyone's comparing sunburns, drinking Nasty Spumante, buying cartons of duty free "cigarillos" and using up their last pesetas on horrid dolls in Spanish National costume and awful straw donkeys and bullfight posters with your name on "Ordoney, El Cordobes and Brian Pules of Norwich" and 3-D pictures of the Pope and Kennedy and Franco, and everybody's talking about coming again next year and you swear you never will although there you are tumbling bleary-eyed out of a tourist-tight antique Iberian airplane..."

Social networking. I found an awesome resort in Cambodia at a great price (and with a French chef) that I only learned about due to friends of friends eating there. It's one of the (few) great uses of Facebook. Post something like "Hey, I'm going to Cambodia next month. Anyone want to recommend anything?" A friend had just finished looking through his friend's Cambodian vacation photos on FB and put us in touch.

Hey, I'm not saying that all people are incapable of making up a good trip. I myself have had quite good luck putting vacations together. But like the saying goes "the world needs ditch-diggers, too", and those chumps go on vacation as well. And they make the rest of us look bad. I'd rather that lot have someone making sure they're not setting themselves up for epic fail, ruining even more locales for everyone else.

This is true. I do a lot of comparison shopping on major purchases and while it is difficult to compare apples to apples with different brands/features, other than a microwave oven once, I've always ended up getting my major appliances at Sears.

Harrison Ford used to be such an incredibly amazing looking human being. There are things that I would do to Harrison Ford back in the 80's so scandalous I dare not mention them in polite company, such as the Purple Potomus and Schmoozeschnitzelvogening. If Harrison Ford from the 80's offered to have sex with me, but in order for that to happen I'd have to vote republican in the presidential election, I'd be screaming Long Live Romney at the top of my lungs.

If Sears could offer me a travel package that would allow me to go back in time to when Harrison Ford was still irresistibly hot, then I would consider putting my vacation on lay-a-way.

Bought a pair of these last year after several Farkers recommended them in some random pants thread. Love 'em. Ones I got are basically like roomier Carhartts without the annoying rivets and a hammer loop on the right side. They do seem to pick up a lot of static charge for some reason, and the dye they use is hella bleach sensitive, but definitely a high comfort to ruggedness ratio.

Yes I quite agree I mean what's the point of being treated like sheep.

In socialist Canadia Sears has been in the travel game for a while now, never used them myself but it must be working for them to take it across the border.
 
2012-06-20 10:16:09 PM
Grew up with Sears. One thing I can say for them is that the majority of their merchandise is QUALITY.

You may pay a little bit more -- and I MEAN 'little bit' but what you get lasts. I've been buying Sears a/c units for decades because they last a minimum of 5 years before developing any minor problems. (Window a/c units.) I've bought units from assorted big name home improvement stores and had the krap out in two years.

Any major appliance I've bought from Sears has lasted much longer than expected. My Mom still uses her Sears electric stove she bought close to 15 years ago -- and I can still get burner shields and replacements for it.

I just replaced a 20 year old 5,000 BTU window unit a/c from Sears (with an 8,000 BTU Sears unit) because after so long, while it still ran, it was having trouble handling the Florida heat and humidity. Plus, after years of high humidity, the casing was rusting out.

Now I bought a Hoover upright for $200 around 6 years ago and recently had to repair it -- to discover that Hoover discontinued the thing. Sears doesn't carry them or parts anymore but I found a place online which sells all of the components. The annoying thing I discovered was that nearly EVERY darn plastic fastener was cracked or broken and the circuit board for the handle switch wore down. Basically, I had to rebuild nearly the entire thing.
Still, I don't blame Sears. I blame Hoover -- which has a history of producing quality vacuum cleaners -- for turning out this overpriced piece of krap. (The Savvy.) It did last 5 years of hard usage, though.

My brother, a certified professional mechanic, uses only Sears Craftsman tools. A bit pricey at times, but have a lifetime guarantee and they have replaced tools he had for years that broke.

I've shopped elsewhere, especially when finances grow tight, but when I can, I go back to Sears. It seems to be one of the few big name stores from the early 1900's which still mean quality for reasonable prices. Wal-mart is far cheaper -- but buy an electronic item from there and in two weeks, when you need something like a new filter, you go back and find they don't carry the thing anymore.

Their computers are much cheaper, but you need to be careful, even with the brand names. They buy up vast lots of computers which are being discontinued. Plus, you need to check the specs to find out how fast a chip they have. Most run in the 2. whatever series.

I shop there mainly for groceries.

However, as I said, when I can and I want something which will last, I go to Sears.
I bought a floor display, large TV from Sears one time, on sale since they were discontinuing the model. Naturally, since it was a floor sample, it had a warranty that lasted until I got it out of the store.

A month later, it broke down -- and Sears sent over a guy who fixed it for free and he had to replace several major parts.

Yeah. I like Sears.

I only posted one of their styles.

I have Carhartt's as well. I have to say, I like the Firehose pants better. They seem to have a much better crotch cut, and they are quite soft.

Carhartt makes a damned fine product though, not knocking them... just personal preference.

2012-06-20 10:38:23 PM
Sears is just sad these days. One morning my car battery died so I got a ride out to Sears because it was the closest store. The automotive department was empty and I decided to see how long it would take for someone to show up. It took 10 minutes for someone to finally show up and mention how the entire store only had 4 people there in the mornings.

When we bought a house I bought a washer and dryer from Sears. The dryer was ok but the washer would only fill up with water and proceed to do nothing. The delivery guys didn't want to take it back for some reason. So I call up and start biatching and at first they want to send out a repair guy. I biatch some more and they finally agree to give me a new one. Lately I've noticed they turn off their parking lot lights at night to save power.

There's a Kmart which I really do prefer over Walmart but it pisses me off when they only have two checkouts open and the express lane also has a lottery machine.
