I agree with your overall point, but Sears sucks.I went in one five years ago for some things. Huge store, stacked with goods, dimly lit, nary a soul and didn't have a dang thing I was looking for.The sales staff was surly and unable to do anything useful.So I went home, found a few items on Amazon, the rest at Home Depot.Of course, this could be a result of the lack of middle-class families, but it sure didn't want me to go back.It's too bad, I like the Craftsman line of tools for home DIY projects.
It's clear we are headed for an economic collapse, but I don't think this instance is a sign of that. Sears started as a mail order catalog, and then moved into departments stores, they are being taken down by another variant of mail-order - Amazon and out maneuvered by more specialized department stores like Home Depot. It looks like this is just a case of death by old age.
