I was sent this via email forward from my friend who has a daughter stationed in Afghanistan. I don't know who the writer is:

Let's all shop at Sears!!!!!!

I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating
its reservist employees who are called up? 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.

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.

So I decided to check it out before I sent it forward. I sent the
following email to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this email 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 store. 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 was cheaper at the
other store.
Here is their answer to my email. . . . . .

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

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

I already don't shop at Waldemart, so I suppose I'll try Sears, especially since patchfire tells me they now have Land's End stuff. I haven't had a Land's End chamois shirt in years.

They do have Land's End, and often it's on sale - it's lovely.
