    The company still has $7.5BN in market equity value. If one believes the thread title is accurate, much less obvious, there's a pretty significant money making opportunity awaiting... [​IMG]
    My thinking exactly. Clearly wall street doesnt agree with this line of thought or the stock wouldnt be trading at 63 dollars a share. Of course if anyone feels the street is behind the curve on this one then short away!

    Craftsman is the banana republic of tools.

    I thought Sears was in bankruptcy fairly recently?
    Like about the time they bought KMart?

    Or am I mistaken?

    Honestly, Mrs. T likes Sears about as much as I hate them. They're good for hardware IMHO, and even then - not so much. They do have the random esoterica when I need it, but even then it's a crapshoot as to availability and quality.

    stores that look to extended contracts for $ are retarded. i always buy them to get the lower price and then return the extended service contract.

    My office has a customer that is a very rich retard from selling service contracts then. They are hugely profitable b/c most people forget they bought them.

    Didn't Sears buy Land's End a few years ago?

    This is something I was wondering too. I don't really care about Sears, but Land's End I am worried about.

    I'm surprised at the contempt for their tools. I've always liked Craftsman, at least for hand tools. As far as the stuff available in stores, I've always found theirs to be the best.

    Sears should keep their tool and appliance departments and get rid of the rest.

    I like Sears Portrait Studio. It's the best.

    Lands' End cut off our affiliateship (going to only "selected partners" now). Wonder if that has anything to do with this?

    i've worked on some planogramming shit for them, as well as a few of lampert's pet projects. a blind man could see this coming. state of the stores has been a huge issue.

    I've done planograms before [​IMG]
