Whether it is online at Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more or in a local store, even if it is just one item. Here is the email that was forwarded to me:
Sears - Christmas shoppingthis year…
Make this a reminder, since Sears is not always our first choice.
It's amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears has not withdrawn from their commitment. We should all purchase at least one item from Sears this year?
How does the company, Sears, treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up for active duty.
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.
Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. To support Sears in their efforts, may I suggest we all shop, at least once either online or at a store. If you go to a store, take an added effort to find a Manager to tell them why you are there, so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.
I decided to check this before I shared it, so I sent the following e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:
I received this e-mail 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 company. 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's cheaper at that store.
This is their reply to my e-mail:
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 and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.
