I'm Shopping at Sears for Christmas, and here is why!


I think that this is awesome and am very proud that my friend has made it available for a re-blog. Thank you, Missy.

I don’t usually shop at Sears, I admit it. (Although I did walk through the other day and found a really cute, hot, lime green peacoat by Lands End.)

But, I am going to shop there this Christmas season.


As a mother of two sons in the Navy, I read and loved Sears support of our military.

Not only do they support our sons and daughters in Active Duty but also those who are in the Reserves. Please take the time to read everything they do for those serving in the military. I had no idea, but they have been doing this for years.

Military Pay Differential and Benefits Continuation

Andrew and Jamie In September 2004, the company extended its military pay differential (fills the gap between military pay and employer pay) and benefits continuation to 60 months for eligible employees called to duty in the Reserves or National Guard.

1) While deployed, eligible employees can:

2) Continue participating in SHC's life insurance, medical and dental programs.

3) Receive annual merit pay increases, incentive pay.

Sears Holding Company which includes KMart holds a comparable position for deployed employees for up to five years. The company has encouraged and supported employees serving in the armed forces for decades.

Records indicate that Sears provided support to employees serving in the military in 1916. Sears pay differential was first instituted in 1990 for Operation Desert Shield-Storm.

I encourage you to read some of the stories of Heros at Home, and how they have helped with wheelchairs, and remodeling of homes.

Christmas home decoratedAny U.S. company, like Sears and K-Mart that is doing so much good for our men and woman serving in the Military are on my shopping list this year.
