Sears, Roebuck and Co., commonly known as Sears, is an American mid-range chain of international department stores, founded by Richard Warren Sears and Alvah Roebuck in the late 19th century. From its mail order beginnings, the company grew to become the largest retailer in the United States by the mid-20th century, and its catalogs became famous. Competition and changes in the demographics of its customer base challenged the company after World War II as its rural and inner city strongholds shrank and the suburban markets grew. Eventually its catalog program was largely discontinued. Sears, a former component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, merged with Kmart in early 2005, creating the Sears Holdings Corporation.

1 It was the worst decision ever to merge with Kmart. Both stores have been drying up left and right in 2016. -- Submitted By: (RockinReed) on October 28, 2016, 11:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 My brother and I LOVED the Wishbook. Every year when we got it, we would immediately go through and start circling everything we wanted for Christmas. Then, my little brother would sneak it later and start x-ing out the stuff I circled just to hack me off. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 6, 2010, 4:27 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Sears cannot ever BTF because of The Sears "Wish Book" that came out every Christmas! (do they still publish that?) One would order from the catalog and then go to the Sears Catalog Store to pick it up when it arrived. Ahhh...the memories of thumbing through it and choosing all of the Barbie paraphenalia I wanted. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on September 21, 2009, 11:49 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
