Lets Shop At Sears
Assume you have all see the reports about how Sears is treating its
employees who are called up? By law, they are required to hold their jobs
open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut
lose benefits as a result of being called up...
Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all
benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up
reservist employees for up to two years. I submit that Sears is an exemplary
corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution.
Suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why
we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement it well
Pass it on.
So I decided to check it out before I sent it forward. I sent the following
email to the Sears Customer Service Department:
"I received this email 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
store. 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 was cheaper at the other store."
Here is their answer to my email......................
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 young men
women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear
