The place to work...


Subject: Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

 I don't usually shop at Sears,,much...maybe around Christmas !!

 I'm a Canadian Tire,,Reno-Depot guy,,, but I thought I would take a second look when my friend sent this to me:  JOHN ,,


 By law, when people are called up for military duty, employers 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. 

 My friend's friend David, who’s son is in Afghanistan sent an e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department to inquire

 about this and he received this e-mail:


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.

We need to show Sears that we do appreciate what they are doing for our military!
