    Sears owning and trying to run KMart … 

    What made Sears, America’s stodgy old mall-retailer think they could operate a discounter like Kmart?  Kmart was suffering and making stumble after stumble … they just didn’t get it … and merging with Sears just made it worst.

    Who buys from Sears?  I used to – years ago.  A lawn mower here, an exercise machine there … and maybe a few clothing items if they were on sale.  They used to have the best prices on Levi’s mens jeans .. but that went away.  Now JCPenney keeps their prices below Sears … and has for many years.

    And KMart … do the executives ever visit the stores?  Run down; poorly managed; dirty and often smelly … with staff that couldn’t give a damn.  Their attitude is they work for Kmart … and if Kmart Corporate doesn’t care … why should they?

    Sears got involved in the prices at Kmart as well and really messed things up.  But that is Sears’ style – they don’t understand discount marketing … because has been achors of large mall for a jillion years … and doesn’t know anything else.

    My shorts at Kmart are $24.95 and up.  Walmart has them from $14.77 to 19.97 or something.  Why would I ever buy at KMart?

    Take a l0ok around folks … it won’t be that many years before Sears and Kmart are gone.  So if you have stock …… :)

    Gas Stations 

    Here you are .. dressed up, ready to go … but you need gas.  One quick stop at the local self-service gas station and the tank is full.  Only one problem.  The guy before you let his tank overflow, and now you have gasoline all over your hands from the nasty pump handle.  And the smell of gasoline stays around.  Even soap and water doesn’t wash it away.

    Some stations have plastic gloves for you to use … but I never think about that.  I just grab the handle and get to work.  And then suffer for it later.



    I’d like to see full serve!  :)
