Sears is closing at least 100 stores.
That means there will soon be at least 100 less places to buy Wrangler jeans, Kenmomre vacuums, and have your family portrait taken.
It’s the end of an era.
Sears is to the 21st century what Montgomery Ward’s was to the 20th century.
One of the last department stores that seemed to bring white trash, regular middle class, and the occassional less than snooty high end customer together.
Sears is the place you go when you want your oil changed and while you wait you can wander over to the electronics section and watch 13 different professional sporting events at the same time.
When you need to buy a pair of Vice Grips, snow tires, and baby clothes…you go to Sears.
Estimates put retail space in America at 14.2 billion square feet.
And the credit card bills typical American consumers receive at about the same.
It’s time to turn 14.2 billion square feet of retail space into 14.2 billion square feet of manufacturing space.
Or legalize drugs and turn every mall into a prescription and formerly illegal drug manufacturing and dispensing facility.
Let’s capitalize on what America does really well…make war and self-destruct.
While they are making drugs in a department store space they can crank out weapons too.
