I remember awhile back, someone suggested Amazon buy the Sears appliance division and sell them as well as take over the repair and parts division.

Seems as though just as no one can leave the Craftsman name alone, that is the best way for the Kenmore brand to stay--and we just need Die Hard to live on...

In short, I think I can see how in this form things are going to be in that transitional tangent, after seeing an almost eternal very worst, to a hopefully very better!

My huge issue with Lowes and Home Depot is they don't carry the depth of product lines Sears has.  They actually may not carry the model or particular color I'm looking for vs. Sears has.  It's why I got my fridge from them in 2007.  Although my dishwasher maybe whirlpool based product, it was the Kenmore brand that had the software, water distribution differentiators that I felt were far superior.  The default wash temperature is 120 degrees rather than the industry-standard paltry 105 and my high-temp is 140 vs. industry-standard 135.

But Wait! Here's More From Walmart

Walmart is ramping up its rollout of self-service kiosks that retrieve customers' online orders, the company told Business Insider.

"Compared to the normal pickup of going to the back of the store, waiting for an employee to see you, then waiting for them to go in the back, this really sped things up," the customer said. "Obviously, being in the front of the store next to an entrance really makes it convenient. I also don't need to show security my receipt because they see me getting the item."




The machine is giant because it holds tons of packages inside, but it's more versatile than pickup lockers — which Walmart has also tested — because it can adjust the size of the compartments where packages are kept.

Walmart spokesman Justin Rushing said the towers could be rolled out to more stores based on customer feedback.

"Our Pickup Towers are the latest example of how we’re using new technology to save our customers time in addition to money," he said. "We’re continuing to listen to our customers and will use their feedback to determine the future expansion of the Pickup Tower."

Walmart recently started testing a similar concept for online grocery orders.

The company also rolled out a new discount this year for shoppers who purchase items online and pick them up in stores, allowing them to save as much as $50 on large items like flat-screen televisions.

Saw this yesterday. 

We had spoken about it on another thread.

I really wish Sears would just stick a fork in their big retail stores and open small "catalog" appliance stores that existed in many small towns until the late 1980s-early-1990s. These places were very small and sometimes had one or two ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers and laundry sets on the floor. You'd place your order and it would arrive there within days. You could then pick up the items or have them delivered/installed in your home.

Many Kenmore-branded appliances are highly rated by CR and I'd go for them, but the nearest Sears is 70 miles away. They no longer service this far away from the hub.

I suppose such catalog or 'online' stores would defeat the purpose of going with direct-shipping Amazon. I'm too old-school, LOL.
