Its called English. Please write in it, re-read to make sure it makes sense, and don't type in all capitals.

Forget about the guy from West Virginia. This might be a good move for Sears. I have shopped at the Great Indoors and found it to be a good experience. Restoration Hardware might be a good fit within the Great Indoors concept. Sears still has a good rep for hardlines.

As far as I'm concerned Sears is a failing business. All it does is try to buy high mid-tier or high-end brands to add to its protfolio. Do you think the Restoration Hardware customer would walk into Sears for a Covington Sweater? Give me a break! As outrageous as it sounds, Restoration Hardware would be better off being bought by Saks Inc. or the PE firm who owns Nieman Marcus!

It could work for Sears. however they need to concentrate non their stores. Some need major renovatios, and a overhaul in merchandise. they need to stop cutting costs that affect customer service. Sears service was as close to Nordstrom, but now has been reduced to K-Mart levels due to their cost sutting and Ed Lambert

When I read this story, my first reaction was, "Well, Restoration Hardware won't be worth visiting anymore!"
I was a Lands End customer for 20+ years until Sears acquired it and, to my mind, ruined it.

I agree with BenThereDunThat. Land's End is no longer as good as it was. Restoration Hardware is too good to ruin. Sears, mind your own stores and take better care of them!

That's it completely. Couldn't have said it better myself.
