Just after we moved down to California, we ended up with a $100 Sears gift card. We had planned to pick up an Xbox One, so we went to buy one. Their electronics department was gutted - just mostly some dinged up TVs in the basement. They didn't have one, and the closest one in their system was a Kmart an hour away. The kids were restless, so we said fuck it and left, buying it at Best Buy. We later used the gift card to buy a Kitchenaid mixer that was inexplicably marked down like 75% for my wife's parents, who paid us back in real money. Months later, it closed up shop in like the space of two weeks. At this point, I have to assume Sears is a joke perpetuated upon the free market.
