Sometime it will get below $10. I don't know when but that will be the true begging of the end. My gosh its been a good ride-- let us all be remembering the poor souls left in the company. It is going to be a bloodbath, nobody will win-- even the great Eddie Lampert. For way too long he has chosen to disavow the good advice of retail people. I am not mad or hateful, just a bit sad another icon of America was gobbled by greed. How much would it have really cost to update the stores and get upscale fashions in them in 2006?? Oh well let's check the specials at Amazon again to see if there is anything we simply can;t do without!! God Bless and do try to be kind in your remarks for the fallen once giant of retail.
Why don't we try to focus on SHLD and leave our petty personalities and differences aside. If you have true knowledge of company business please share. Childhood games of "name calling' are simply juvenile( but must be permitted) and totally unnecessary. Focus on the FACTS and leave the insults to children.
Sales IS how you make money. Margins are only percentages until you SELL it.Shirley you don't think "we" are doing great?? If your markup is 100% someone has to BUY it to put money in the till. The art of SELLING has been lost at the new Sears..They are "financial" managers. Very good at that job but absolutely a disaster in Retail!! Sorry Shirley-- its just a dream//
I agree with Packers this is the right hire== the trouble is-- Mr Lampert will not listen to him anymore than the other execs who have come and gone.. Retail is kind of a specialty business about PEOPLE not figures. I believe it is too late now for even General Wood to save this sinking ship. That is probably the plan anyway.. You can't make this stuff up-- losing BILLIONS in sales yet SSS does not matter????
All in all what does it really matter?? What does ANY action at this point matter?? The tipping point has been reached--best go watch a good movie instead of the constant sinking of the old grand ship...
