Topics regarding layoffs at Sears
I've walked into Kmart's before where the merchandise is not tidy on the shelf and has things like candy wrappers etc all over the shelves. That is NOT Eddie's fault, that's the fault of the so called employees at that store. Some Kmart have great... read more
I see lots of employees complain that there isn't enough staff, if there were more sales and customers there'd be more staff. Kmart is running on lower staff in order to survive until sales pickup. Fewer customers means fewer staff and it means that... read more
Food? What's wrong what's needed? Clothing? Home wares? Toiletries? Seems in my opinion to be pricing Seasonal? Very good department and quality of goods. Candy? I think if Kmart could become the store that gets the newest most limited edition... read more
Creative options to revive the brand and get a cult going around the brand is needed. If every single Kmart employee would be energized to do their all every single day to make every single dollar possible then perhaps Kmart will once again be king... read more
There needs to be a coming together of all of those loyal to Kmart to purchase everything possible in our daily lives at Kmart. Do you encourage your friends and family to shop Kmart? Do you use every chance you get to promote Kmart? We need to... read more
Kmart has the best stores left and instead of having kmart purchases in markets spread over several stores, customers can now come to one really good and well stocked store to purchase all the Kmart merchandise. I know Kmart can become stronger and... read more
If you choose to work for Kmart and then do nothing but hope for the company to fail or complain about the company then that says a lot about you and who you are. Kmart might have a lot of problems, but employees who are not loyal and don't do... read more
Looks like the old adage is true, one man's loss is another man's gain. The talk about which retailers would benefit the most if Sears closed all of its stores has already started... read more
That was pretty funny this morning. Now Gareth's post has been removed HA
The links broken lol. Who payes these people? /
Fast eddie will throw thousands of peeps out of work before throwing in the towel and doing a Ch. 11 reorg
Everyone believing the media hype that Amazon is causing retail's demise when Amazon only accounts for around 4% of total retail, and now they're even laying people off... read more
I don't think that we will ever know for sure what Eddie Lampert's original intentions were. I suspect it was along the lines of attempting to do something that few had done before & come out successful. It probably became more difficult than he had... read more
The bad news coming out of Sears is steady to the point of being tedious. The overall message, as the company warned investors in March, is that after a six-year, $10 billion losing streak with no turnaround in sight, "substantial doubt exists... read more
Let’s post and see what we all got out of this meeting First one ends at 11am
We receive shipments of tires and supplies on Fridays each week. Lately the shipments are very low. Twelve tires, All Lauflen's. A few filters and wiper blades. Battery shipments are down to a hand full. We only have about 100 batteries in the store... read more

Former Sears employee here, left 19 years ago. I’m really curious as to why people are staying. I heard they no longer 401 K match or contribute to the pension. Seems like morale is low too. It’s begs the question why? What’s compelling you to stay?
Do you have senior discounts there at Sears? I am not sure who to ask, nobody is picking up the phone in Alpharetta, GA on N Point Circle.
More stellar service from Sears. /
More recently, the company also amended an agreement with PBGC (Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation), whereby after February 2018, nearly 138 properties will be moved away from the ring-fence agreement created under the PPPFA (Pension Plan... read more
So who really knows what the meeting is about?
SHLD stock closed at 2.11 after falling as low as 2.09 during the trading day. Most stocks were down today, but SHLD lost more percentage than most of them. SHLD is very close to dollar stock territory and likely Chapter 11 -> Chapter 7. Remember... read more
In order to replace the registers you’d probably have to replace the entire infrastructure. You’d run into compatibility issues if you didn’t. Just look at the ipads for example. They were brand new devices that were still bottlenecked by old... read more
Amber Martin, 39, of Ocala, was arrested on grand theft. Ocala police on Wednesday arrested a Kmart employee suspected of stealing thousands of dollars from the store. Amber Martin, 39, of Ocala, told a police officer she took the cash because she is... read more
I’m thinking ours is 6pm-9pm I liked at my schedule and on Sunday I’m scheduled my normal morning hours for the ad, then have to come back at 6-9 I guess it’s the best time to get everyone so it does not interfere with store open hours
New registers for all stores would probably solve 70% of the stress and problems faced daily by employees. Seems like a relatively small cost to boost moral and perhaps give the company some financial breathing room. It just doesn't make sense to me... read more
What is the EXACT relationship between the parties and how is it legal?
Please Eddie put some money into the stores!!! 90% of retail is still bricks and mortar. Just pick a market niche and do it really well! Find something that sets Kmart apart from the rest. Kmart actually has very good products, just need better... read more
Bloomberg has produced a brief video game simulator about what it is like to own and operate a mall in 2018. The game is insightful and entertaining (especially when the game ends) /
I worked for Sears for almost three years. Almost a year in, the salespeople were leaving in droves. Either they were retiring or they just up and left. So, our store hosted a hiring blitz where they would interview and hire on the spot. One of the... read more
ST. CROIX — Kmart West on St. Croix was robbed of an untold amount of cash in the wee hours of Saturday morning, hours following the Black Friday rush — traditionally one of the most profitable days in the year for retail outlets like Kmart... read more

Do I lose my discount when I start drawing my pension, or is this because of the changing of the discount to points?
