  • I think they missed their chance. If they had re-oriented towards their strong points, Craftsman Tools, Kenmore Appliances, and their Sears Home Services moving into smaller real estate and perhaps licensing those brands when their downturn first started, I believe Sears would have survived.

  • They still have a prayer, but that's about all. In all reality, we should expect Sears to fold- in some manner, shape or form- in the next few years. Some think it was a miracle it held on as long as it did. Lampert's personal bid failed, so, there's not much hope left, barring some sort of strange Hail Mary. Sears failed to stick to its core competency, moved too slowly, and when they finally did, it was in the wrong direction, not far enough, or both. They missed the mark a long time ago and never changed to keep up with the times. The internet and e-commerce pulled customers from their brick-and-mortar locations, customers which a late foray into e-trade failed to regain. Going the way of Wieboldts and Wards, Sears may well likely be another casualty of poor business planning.

  • Damn what happened to Sears? I never shopped there and haven't seen anything from them so I didn't know they were closing

  • I think Sears failed to adjust their marketing and merchandising strategies long ago and the cumulative loss of their customer base is insurmountable.

    • Idunno, haven't you noticed like every single big boi company falling into complete obscurity? It's kinda sad, besides your localized food chains and such it's pretty much centered around Wal-Mart's fat ass now.

  • Honestly, I'm surprised they lasted this long. It was a piece of crap company and store 20 years ago.

  • If they had a stronger online presence, maybe, but anymore if a company has not established themselves online, l they won't do very well.

  • It's over! I also think there will be several other large stores that will also go down over the next five years. Malls are going to close too. The Internet has done this. It's so much easier to buy online than to fight the traffic and crowds.

  • Sears biggest mistake was getting out of the catalog business. That would have been a perfect transition to internet sales.

  • I loved Sears as a kid, but they have declined over the years to the point where it isn’t enjoyable to shop there.
