I had thought that Kmart owned Sears, but that article seems to
indicate it's the other way around. Whomever made the decision
at Sears to acquire Kmart is clueless. Total waste of capital, if
that's what was involved.
Retail is a dying segment anyway. Kind of a two edged sword though;
purchasing some things are a real PITA solely online.

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."
