Default Are any Sears stores open?

I was needing some tools replaced (warranty). Nothing that I can't replace fairly reasonable though.

The one in north east mall is still there. But it looks like a 3rd world discount store on the inside.

You'd probably have better luck going to Lowes. I think they bought out Craftsman?

They did, and they still honor the Craftsman warranty.

Stanley tools still owns and manufactures the chraftsman tools, but lowes is now a retailer.

Stanley is moving production back to the usa.

Went to Lowes yesterday and was surprised to see Craftsman lawn equipment and tools advertised all over the store. Sears is DONE.

The Lowes here has more Craftsman than Kobalt it seems. I had heard someone say they would phase out Kobalt, but I don't know how much truth there is to that.

I haven't seen it advertised lately but I know Ace Hardware was selling some Craftsman fora while. Don't know if they warranty the broke stuff though.

They were done the day Eddie Lampert was named CEO. His hedge fund did really well raping the company for all of it's assets and then buying the remaining carcass (the actual real estate) for slightly more than half of market value after their bankruptcy.

Yeah I went to my local store and there was craftsman shit all over the middle of the isles as if they had nowhere else to put it.
