I got this in email from a fellow Freeper and thought that it was such good example of American corporate patriotism, that I should pass it along to the forum.

I looked for a way to redact the portions of the email that encourage others to do business with Sears, but it would have undone the full impact of the message.

I have no connection to Sears, and will not benefit in any way if any of you choose to do some Christmas shopping there.

I did a search of articles on FR and didn't find anything on this story. I feel that Sears is exhibiting a high degree of patriotism and love for our troops, and for that, they deserve to be commended.

I agree-I see it in action everytime I go to Sears-especially now when they are taking donations to support our heros seeing action right now. Best of all...Sears actually DOES IT! I shop there now for more things than just large appliances-that once every 10 years or so thingie-lol.b Hint: They have GREAT candles and picture frames.

I hit the LandsEnd shop in Sears for kids shoes and basics.

Question: Does K-Mart participate in this as well?

That is all fact and I am glad you reminded me of it. IIRC they have had that policy for quite some time and certainly it was noted after 9/11.

And Sears still warantees its non-electrical Craftsman tools for life. Bring the broken one in and walk out with a replacement (my dad did that for years — he was TOUGH on tools).

And I have an appliance service contract with Sears and they are every bit as responsive as they promise. I have gotten service in 1 or 2 days every time I have needed it.

I would really, really like if if 0bama’s middle name was “Craftsman”.

Because he’s broken and we need a “no questions asked” replacement.

And Sears actually uses the word ‘Christmas’ in its advertising.
