All Sears and Kmart expected to close.

Posted by   + Show Post
I read on CNN Money that ultimately, all Sears and Kmart will eventually close. It stated that since Sears bought Kmart in 2005, they have been on a downward spiral.

I believe it. Sears has been horrible for awhile now. My parents a had a Kenmore fridge and the motor in the freezer caught fire. Thankfully they were home and the only thing damaged was the fridge. They had an electrician come out to make sure it wasn't the wiring or anything. They called to report it, not seek money, but let them know and have it on file in case it happened to others. They were completely blown off.


As for Kmart, I got a couple of their influencers and not only had trouble finding things to spend the money on, but the store was gross and the employees were rude.

this is really terrible..sorry you had to deal with all that

Quoting Sportbominable:

I totally believe this. Kmart online ordering sucks! It took weeks for them to correct the issue that they blamed me for. I ordered a bunch of bedding, 4 mattresses and 2 sets of bunk beds and the whole system screwed it up. Then I talked to live people who somehow ordered 16 mattresses and sent the rest of the stuff to a Kmart in Georgia (I live in PA) Then it took 5 different people to correct the problem. One lady accused me of ordering all that stuff. I was also charged for all that stuff and they would not refund it right away and couldn't even find some of it in the system. They are a terrible company!

I am very sorry to hear that, I like k-mart because you can put stuff on lay-a-way year round
