Sears is a chain of department stores that began as a mail ordering company but started opening retail stores in 1925. Though it was founded by Richard Warren Sears and Alvah Curtis Roebuck in 1886, it is solely an American company that was later bought up by the American big box chain Kmart in 2005.
This brought about its renaming to Sears Holdings when the sales was complete. Until October 1989, it was the largest retailer in the United States in terms of domestic revenue. Walmart bettered that record the same year and as of October 2013 it is the fifth-largest American department store by sales. That is to say, it is standing behind Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and The Home Depot. Sears operates in Canada, Mexico and a few other locations yet it is the twelfth-largest retailer in the country.
Sears Outlet makes available great offers on refrigerators, washers & dryers, mattresses, and kitchen appliances both in store and online. With great specialty in home appliances, household goods, lawn/garden equipment, fitness equipment and electronics tools, you can’t miss out on any great deal.
The website is always giving out deals and coupons for discounts up to 25-70% off the manufacturer’s retail price. All these discounts go for scratched and dented, new, discontinued, out of box and reconditioned items. And each of their Outlet reps top brands (Kenmore, LG, GE, Samsung, Whirlpool and Craftsman home appliances) so quality is always and definitely assured.
