Im not posting this just as a sears bash but just a general heads up...don't leave your wife and or kids home alone if someone is coming to the house to deliver something, clean, etc.
This is an email that my cousin sent us RE: SEARS
I wanted to let everyone know about an incident that happened to Erick & I this week in hopes of it not happening to any of you. Carson is crawling now so we decided we needed to have our carpets professionally cleaned. We called Sears Carpet Cleaning because of their name and their long-standing reputation in the business. We had two gentlemen come last Wednesday, July 25th to do the work. The men weren’t terribly professional looking but I figured what can you expect with carpet cleaners. They did a fine job and left. This week we realized that one of them had stolen two checks from our house that day. He made both checks out to himself, one in the amount of $500 and the other for $700 and cashed them both. We reported the incident to police, closed the bank accounts, reported it to Sears, etc. The manager of the Sears Carpet that we made the appointment with hasn’t been too terribly cooperative from the get-go. The night that we realized the money was missing and who took it we did a little research on the man. Come to find out (in less than five minutes online), he has been convicted of numerous burglary & robbery charges and was recently released from prison where he spent the last 15 years for 2nd Degree Murder, a plea bargain from 1st Degree Murder. Of course, this somewhat changed our feelings on the entire situation. We called Sears the next morning to ask why they didn’t do a background check on this man. Surely, they wouldn’t be comfortable allowing convicted murderers into peoples homes each day! Turns out, they knew of his record and stated that he served his debt to society and was no immediate threat to my family. We, of course, feel differently. Erick and I know are a bit more anxious even being in our home. Who’s to say this man hasn’t told one of his criminal buddies the layout of our house, where the high-dollar items are, etc. How do we know, he won’t come back? Needless to say, we will never use Sears for anything ever again. I hope to convince all of you not to as well.

Name's not everything. Referrals from those that had prior experiance is were I get my tips from. My neighbor of 8 years is a carpet cleaner and I still use him. Does a great job everytime. Moves all my furniture. Does individual carpet/runners and 7 rooms for $80. If you want his number PM me..
I don't trust anyone in the house anymore. A young woman will killed not too long ago here in Central Ohio by two appliance delivery guys from a reputable local store (not a chain). They took her right out her house in broad daylight. Big name or small name, it doesn't matter, you got to watch them like a hawk. While many might be just hard working guys doing a job, the industries doing home delivery just don't police themselves enough.
buying a car from me...stand outside with me and thats that...If you know me ...well...you have my number...if ya don't have my number, I do not know you...I assume (rare for me) every stranger at my door is a killer or a thief...or Jehovah
Knock on my door...I come out to enjoy the outside with you....Or mostly just I don't answer...Hey if I do not know your coming...then you wasted your time. Any bussiness inside my home I do. If I can not fix it...I replace it.
The ONLY exception is the Rare satellite purchase and double dish aim. Period.
I trust only known family members without issues.

most of the Sears stores sub out work to contractors from who knows where.
ive never seen them use any contractors local, guess its cheaper to find some one 70 miles away,
siding ,roofing ,cabinets all of it.
couple of my neighbors used them, one for siding shutters, what crappy work. another neighbor used them for replacement windows ,more crappy work.
and ive seen some of the clowns at work, no way id use Sears.
