Oh, yeah... Youth will line up to buy anything we slap a rapper's picture on...

We'll make millions on their stupidity! And, on their parents' inability to say No to ANYTHING!!!

Selling to public school grads is Great! Ain't it?

If Sears tried to burn money, I don't know if they could do it any faster. Having worked for Sears Holdings (glad I escaped before all the layoffs - another 50 last week apparently not big enough to be reported publicly), I can honestly say that as a retailer, no effort is made to retail.

The company is so misguided and out of touch that if you asked ten executives who their core market is, you would get ten different answers. If you asked what direction the company should go, you will get twenty different answers.

Sears -- your stock was at $172 a year ago? What is it valued at today? Clearly, you are clueless. Look at other retailers and figure out what they are doing right. Then decide what you want to be as a retailer. The lack of vision and focus is perplexing. This stock should be dumped now, it is only worth the value of the real estate they hold and that is dropping fast.
