Let's all shop at Sears!!!!!!
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.
So 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......................
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 all your 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!!!!!!!!!!!
You can check this out at Snopes.
I guess the Hollywood crowd will have to shop elsewhere this year.
And Sears now carries Lands' End; and Kmart is coming!
I don't shop there, but I'm going to start. Thank you, Sears.
Another good reason to shop at sears
Sears deserves to be commended, but many companies do this. I know Ford does, and I would wager many others do too. I'll see if I can find a list somewhere.
Support our troops ping!!!
Confirmed this with the manager at our local sears too, shop there when ever possible. :)
Way to go Sears. It is nice to see a company that cares!
On the snopes link above, they have links to two lists of companies who do similar things. Perhaps we should post them here.
Thank you, CSM. Please do that.
A list like that would be greatly appreciated.
I guess this begins to make up for Sears having yanked funding for the Boy Scout of America after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in their favor over their policy of not allowing openly gay Scout masters. This is a good first step back into the good graces of decency-loving people. They still need to explain their ugly decision to yank funding from the BSA which was part of an effort that really put the BSA in a financial bind.
These things are never as straightforward as they seem, are they?
I usually only shop at Sears for thier Lands End line. My grandmother, however, is the biggest Sears lover ever. I'll check out their website.
This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of good stuff that is worthy attention. I keep separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson, Lee Harris, David Warren, Orson Scott Card. You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about).
