My Mom works for Land's End who was bought by Sears a few years ago. She's a little worried about K-Mart buying Sears.

Nope. K-Mart bought Sears. Sears hasn't been doing too well either...

Re: How long till Wal_Mart follows suit?

Apparently, K-Mart made pretty good money selling the land/buildings after closing a bunch of the stores. Enough to buy Sears anyway. From what I've heard they're going to try putting Sears stores in old K-Mart buildings (ones they didn't sell I guess). They figure the Sears name will do better out of the Malls.

Rich guy that does turn arounds bought lots of K Mart and became CEO (I think). Speculation is he bought Sears for the 'Synergy' I typed a buzz word I feel so unclean

i too worry about this, i guess there are other brands out there that offer lifetime warranty's and should be just as good. that is the only thing sears had going for them anyway. ok, maybe their appliances as well

I aactually like Sears. If you want dress clothes at a decent price but good quality they are a good choice. On appliances they are decent but low convenience (but not a pain to deal with like worst buy or circuit city) And they have lots of Sheep $$$$ on tools
