  • OT Sears

    ((sorry for posting OT but I got this yesterday and wanted to share for
    those who might be interested))

    Subject: Sears

    Maybe we should all consider doing a little more Christmas shopping at
    Sears!
    I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating its
    reservist 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 and 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. I 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 deserves.

    Pass it on.

    I decided to check this it out before I sent it forward. Snopes.com showed
    this as being TRUE and 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.......................
    "Dear Customer: 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.

    Please pass this on to all your friends, Sears needs to be
    recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show
    them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our
    military!

    Top post:

    Good for Sears! I hope lots of people feel as you do.

    In Singapore, where men are required to serve for two years and then
    2-4 weeks each year thereafter, the wage differential is made up to
    the individual. But I can't recall if it's the company or the
    government that is responsible for the difference.

      Thanks for the heads-up on this. N.B. everyone, the company who owns
      Sears also owns Land's End. So, if you want to give clothes for
      Christmas...

      Linda

      Off to Sears
