Danceswithwires: It's a shame Sears used to be very good store, now it will be just another victim of Wall street
stuhayes2010: I would blame amazon.com for sears doing poorly. I haven't shopped there in ages.
Mad_Radhu: I worked for Sears in college, and they were idiots back then when it came to managing inventory.
Mad_Radhu: I worked for Sears in college, and they were idiots back then when it came to managing inventory. We were always out of the most profitable items, like high end TVs or nice stereo receivers. Hell, we carried HP printers, but we were almost always out of the replacement ink carts, which made no goddamned sense. They really kept shooting themselves in the foot when their salespeople had never had the right things to sell.
soopey: Mad_Radhu: I worked for Sears in college, and they were idiots back then when it came to managing inventory.They still are. I bought a washer and dryer on black Friday. Two weeks later I got an automated phone call saying "This is sears. The item you ordered is no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience." Two weeks later I got a refund check on just the washer. Waited a week, then deposited that sucker.
Toxicphreke: I did 10 years at Sears in Tools and Garden. I made good money for a time then they tried to Wal-Mart up the place. Sold off repair. Sold off delivery. Even sold off their credit cards. Nothing in stock. Internet killing them. I got out of there. I was commission sales Ishidan, but I remembered it as MCA (Merchandising and Customer Assist). What was an MTA?
