APPLAUSE TO SEARS for Christmas….Worth noting

Sears  - Christmas  shopping this year.    

I know I  needed this reminder, since Sears isn’t always my  first choice.  It’s amazing  when you think of how long the war has lasted and  Sears hasn’t withdrawn from their commitment. Could  we each buy at least one thing at Sears this  year?

What commitment  you say?  

How does  Sears treat its employees who are serving in our military?  By law , they are  required to hold their jobs open and available, but  nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and  lose benefits as a result of being on active duty.

Sears is  voluntarily  paying the  difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits,  including medical insurance and bonus programs, for  all employees who are serving.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I  suggest we all shop at Sears at least once this  year.   Be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the  company gets the positive reinforcement &  feedback it well deserves.

Pass it on.

I decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer  Service Department:

I received this  e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it  is, the Internet may have just become one very good  source of advertisement for your  company. I know I would go out of my way to buy  products from Sears instead of another store for a  like item, even if it’s cheaper at that  store.

This is their  answer to my e-mail:  

Dear  Customer:
Thank you for contacting Sears.
The  information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.  Sears regards service to our country as one of the greatest sacrifices our men and women can make. This is the “least” we can do for them.  

We are happy  to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at  this time.

Please pass this  on . Sears  needs to be recognized for this

outstanding contribution and we     need to show  them as  Americans, we do

appreciate what they are  doing for  our Military!!!
