Police let the family go and waited for a Sears manager to come back to lock the store back up. Reporters from TV station WXYZ asked the manager on duty to comment on the situation, and got passed to Sears higher-ups. Sears claims to be “investigating” still.
While the screengrab illustrating this post says “Kmart,” it’s actually a Sears Outlet store that shares a building with a K-Dollar discount store. Which is to say, a discount discount store.
