    Less than 3 customers in the entire store. 17 employees standing around (presumably on the clock), doing nothing. EVERY light fixture burning electricity. 25+ TVs burning electricity. Are they intentionally wasting money? They want to be "different" than other Retailers, and they are succeeding. What other Big Box store practices the above mentioned behaviors?

    • Can we do another thread making fun of the anecdotal reports posted here about Sears stores? That was so much fun...

      "The Sears store is in the bad part of town, basically just an abandoned warehouse. Tried to take my family there to buy clothes but the building was empty and had been commandeered by drug smugglers."

    • did you see any bears roaming around the store?

      • Here's an observation for you....
        While you all solve the retailer conundrums
        I want to know why the Astronomers didn't
        Carpe Diem(seize the day) from
        December and January and give it to February
        so they each have 30 days?
        Please solve this inequality and save the world!
        Already it would take 2 colder days and push them
        closer to spring so we'd be saving energy.
        Kind of like daylight savings time as the sun is up
        longer later in February than it is in January!
        Now back to retailing.

    • What were the bathrooms like? Any observations from in there?

        I've been constipated for a couple of days but today my bowels finally moved. Luckily, there was a Sears store nearby. I found a nice, quiet stall, put a seat liner on the seat, and I sat myself down. It felt like I was sliding a 2 X 4's out my rectum but I kept at it. Finally, there was nothing more to drop. Expecting the worse, I grab a big bunch of bath tissue but there was no evidence of the wretched affair that had just gone down. I was surprised. I stood up and pushed the silver handle down to send the rancid mess on its sorry way. The two Lincoln logs seem to fight each other to see which would be the first to make it down the bowl. I thought for sure I'd have to flush a second time but to my shock, they both made it down with the final vortex. All the same, I flushed a second time just to make sure the pipes were clear.

        I peeked out of the stall door just to make sure that no one would associate my likeness with the horrible odor that now lingered in the restroom. Fortunately, the coast was clear. I quickly washed my hand and I absconded the Sears premises. I felt bad about not making some sort of purchase at Sears to allow them to recoup the cost of disposing of my wretch mess but I desperately wanted to leave the scene of the crime. I do thank Sears for being there when I needed them.
