I received this from member Randy of the “I’m higher than you state of Colorado”. Great news when you are planning things like major purchases. I like to buy American and give my business to those who stand with me these days. After rereading this, I think it also bears mention that Randy was referring to a geographical fact rather than a mental accomplishment.
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 It’s amazing when you think of how long the wars have lasted, and Sears hasn’t withdrawn from their commitment.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.
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:
Thank you for contacting Sears. The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback. Sears regards service to our country as one of 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.
Sears Customer Care
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!!!
