    "they" say that small business is the backbone of the American economy but only in iconic, epically large corporations do they reward CEO's for failure. It's kind of like "fuck up & move up" in the military. Once you are past 20 years in all they can do is give you a job with less responsibility where you can't (in theory) cause any more damage.

    It seems to me (not a business expert) that there is no downside in the US to bringing a corporation to it's knees. In Japan they have people doing their Rocky The Flying Squirrel imitations from their offices over not meeting quarterly production goals. :bergman:

    God, finally.

    Prostate cancer kills people faster than it's taken Sears to die off. :lol:

    Shopko also filing for bankruptcy

    The Payless ShoeSource partnership probably didn't help

    At this rate ,I'm beginning to think Sears is going to outlive the Queen, Betty White and the cockroaches that survive the nukes we'll toss out during WWIII :jayzus:

    I can't imagine Sears means that much to Eddie Lampert as to pour his own money into it from his hedge fund. Is the joke on us? Is he trying to win a bet with his golf buddies?

    I hope to live long enough to see the movie Hollywood will eventually do on thos where they'll cast Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus' as yet to be conceived spawn in the lead, continuing a third generation of talentless hacks. :borg:

    :unsure:

    I was legit unaware they even had furniture or appliances. I usually think of Sears for that.

    Press F for respects :(

    I grew up on those shoes and they were a good place to get a decent pair of summer sandals. Now, where will I go? :(

    The 50% off sales they are having right now are great for kids shoes. Get it while it lasts. We got some dress shoes for the boy for Easter, a new pair of tennis shoes, a pair of beach sandals, and a pair of high top basketball shoes all between $10-$15 each. They also still add on an extra 10% off for military vets.
