Well CSSU was right again!! Sears is closing stores and more to come in the year!!! I hate sears personally I think their stores are crap and their products are over priced. JCPenny is reinventing itself while sears continues to drop.

This Sears has a terrible store mgr and honestly would be out of business if it wasn't 1 of 3 in WV.

CSSU has predicted that the end of Sears will occur between 2015 and 2017. So far CSSU has been on track with Circut City, Borders, Kmart/Sears Chapter 13 and MANY other projections.

Many people we spoke with who worked their are thankful they have quit or been released.

CSSU will keep you posted, we ask that you boycott Sears for their skyrocket prices and poor quality of care. CSSU says "Try the new JCPenny's, it's a great adventure and the prices are getting better."

On average customers saved $216 shopping somewhere else.

A CSSU rep said "Get rid of your sears cards, their interest rates are the highest and trickiest. At one time they had great offers but this company has nothing to offer its customers any longer, unless you want a place to lose money."

I agree 100% and the thing about the store mgr I agree I quit over the harassment, my gf even witnessed it. But a mgr stood up for me and has since left the company as well.

They do not care about their customers, and if the str mgr would stay off his phone and stop his harassment the store would do much better.

Craftsman tools are not made in china.
Wiki craftsman tools for a list of US companies manufacturing for craftsman.

Actually our tools are made in china but then molded in the US that's how they get by with saying "Made in USA".

It's sad but true.

No, Kobalt, craftsman, mac, snap-on are all made in the same factory. It was formerly owned by Danaher.

Craftsman is a line of tools and lawn and garden equipment controlled by Sears Holdings Corporation; the brand is owned by KCD IP, LLC, a special purpose entity created by Sears Holdings for securitization purposes.[1]

The tools are sold in Sears, Kmart, and Orchard Supply Hardware stores (all three owned by Sears Holdings), as well as Fastenal,[2] US military Army and Air Force Exchange Service stores, Summit Racing Equipment and Ace Hardware.[3][4]

The Craftsman Industrial line is sold by industrial supplier W. W. Grainger.[5]

Additionally, Craftsman Hand Tools are also sold at "The Craftsman Experience," the brand's retail venue in downtown Chicago.[6]

General hand tools have been made by a variety of manufacturers over the years including New Britain,[7] Moore Drop Forge,[8] Stanley,[9] Easco Hand Tools,[10] and most recently the Apex Tool Group[11](wrenches, ratchets, and sockets) and Western Forge[12](screwdrivers, pliers, and adjustable wrenches). Craftsman-branded garage door openers are manufactured by The Chamberlain Group.[13]

No I know that, but all the materials we get are from china. It says it right on our boxes before we stamp them "Craftsman"
Craftsman is an idiot

Guy, you are simply off your rocker.

It's YOUR decision to buy US Steel. Better yet I hope they do move overseas, becuase it's clear they have clueless employees.

I can tell you one thing - it's a terrible place to work. They expect you to do a hundred different things a day for minimum wage, and then you get chewed out if it's not done. It's no wonder they can't keep people.

Throw K-Mart into this list, since they merged with Sears. That place is starting to look worse than Big Lots.

I noticed they've been getting rid of the hunting items. Haven't had guns in a long time. Now, ammo is gone. Everything else in the hunting/fishing section is dwindling down to nothing.

Sears used to be the place to go for everything. It was kinda like Wal-Mart, except they didn't constantly run out of stock and everything wasn't cheap Chinese garbage.

I guess the company believes they are moving beyond the hilljack hunters and catfisherman types, but they are digging their own grave by leaving behind the average American.

CSSU predicts 30 more Sears will close in 2013. They believe by 2015 Sears will be completely gone.

CSSU predicts Walmart will win top sales for Black Friday and Sears the lowest of the major Retailers.

"Sears has failed to bring value back to the customer. They continue to raise prices and uses the % off feature to trick their customers. I'm certain that by 2015 Sears will be gone. People will begin to shop at improved retailers such as JCP and Macy's. Walmart won't be impacted it will be the defined retailers like JCP and Macy's who will see increased sales." - CSSU

Just saying we associates suck because we are not trained. They just pull us off the streets and expect us to know everything and be costumer service and ring people up and get people to apply for credit and the stupid pointless rewards program. It's ridiculous. The costumer knows just as much as the worker.

@ Employee. What you state is becoming quite evident. I'm seeing the same situation appearing at Lowes and other retailers. New people aren't being trained to work the cash register in advance. Manager standing there telling the person each button to push and what to say to each customer throughout the entire transaction, while people are standing in line. Held our line of 4 people up for about 20 minutes.
