Default Sears...............

Local Sears store closing. Been there since 1962. Very sad, looks like bones that the vultures have picked clean. Only 7 days till doors close.
HOWEVER on a brighter note. At least for me: 65% off. NEW IN BOX
MAJOR SCORE

Nice toolbox.

I haven't been to a sears in a while. I stopped going about 7 years ago when I brought back a failed 3/4" Ratchet and they said they couldn't replace it? I thought they covered their hand tools? oh well... I have owned so many Craftsman products over the years and they have always been a very good tool for the price in my mind.

Lampert owns it now with his bid by the deadline through his hedge fund ESL for 4.6 or something billion. Kmart Sears could be reinvented hard to say. It's 425 stores. I could see this as salvageable for such a historic brand. Credit markets are cloaked in secrecy so we might never know the details.

For me it was a major purchase for over 1/2 off and they still sell Craftsman at Ace Hardware and Lowe's so if I have a problem that is where I will be going for any warranty.

The Sears near me at the mall closed the upper level about a year ago. Went to the mall last week for Christmas shopping. very busy place, but noticed sears now closed the lower level and is completely gone.

Those jerks screwed me on an HVAC deal 17+ years ago. I never forgot, and never set foot in their stores again. I've outlasted them. Bastards.

Better check those facts. You canít warranty it at Lowes if you didnít buy it there.

It will not be resurrected. Itís being financially dismantled. The real estate was already sold. The biggest brands already sold. Itís financial dismantlement while the shareholders get screwed and Lambert and others make billions.

Thanks. Didn't know that. I doubt much can go wrong with a box though.

That's an interesting take. I was wondering what would happen with the newer stores that are not closing. I had not thought of rebranded as Kmart / Sears but that would make sense.

The local Sears store is not closing, but the local KMart closed a year ago. I'm surprised the local Sears hasn't closed It's had 3 different owners in about 6 or 7 years.

Craftsmen website says they honor warranty.....

For more information about our warranties click here, or call us at 888-331-4569.

HOW WILL YOU HANDLE SEARS CANADA CUSTOMERS WHO ARE LOSING WARRANTY COVERAGE FROM SEARS?

We will do the right thing for CRAFTSMAN customers and loyalists by honoring valid limited and lifetime warranty claims through our distribution partners. For more information, please contact us at 888-331-4569.

Did the same to me on a HVAC install Was to get x amount of rebate ,dont recall the amount ,maybe 1500 or so
Something about the model.I screwed around with the payment for a couple of years
Called them back for service every month with bullshit stories of how it was not heating or cooling
They deliberately mislead me on the rebate

Needed a part for the dishwasher so checked out Sears. Lady said it would take 1 month to receive, $94 that had to be paid up front and was non-returnable. Computer was facing me so I asked for a piece of paper and pen to write the info down including the part number. She literally pressed a button on the keyboard to make the screen disappear and said "Sorry, we cant do that". Never stepped foot in a Sears store again. This was 9 years ago....
