    I checked this out last year and found it to be true. Haven't checked to see if has changed.


    Sears - Christmas shopping has already started

    I know I needed this reminder since Sears isn't always my first choice. Amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and they haven't withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

    How does 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.

    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.

    Decided to check this before I sent it forward. 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 answer to my e-mail:

    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.

    Bill Thorn
    Sears Customer Care
    webcenter@sears.com

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

    Safeway has the same policy. Im not sure where but someone probably has a list compiled.

    this is a big commitment from these employers, and i agree with the above posters-- they deserve our support

    Leadman, thanks for the post. My son and his family just recently purchased a new refrigerator from Sears. His unit has been called up for their second deployment. He left for Ft. Sill OK the day after Thanksgiving and will be going to Afganastan after Christmas. His wife received a letter from Sears last week stating that no payments and no intrest incured while he is gone. A very much appreciated Christmas gift from Sears.

    Thank you and have a Merry Christmas

    Steve E.

    Wow, Steve...how did Sears know? That is AWESOME that Sears did that.

    I'll keep your son in my prayers.

    Devi, I'm not sure. Will have to ask. Thanks for the concern and prayers; it does mean a lot. You and Martin have a wonderful Christmas. Steve
