Where Is The Item I Sent Back To Sears? Don’t Ask Sears Or UPS, They Don’t Know

What ring? Victoria ordered a ring from Sears, but wasn’t happy with it and sent it back. That’s the whole point of the return process, right? Only the point isn’t supposed to be that the item disappears into the ether and the retailer shrugs. At least we’d like to think so. [More]

Sears does allow customers to order online and pick up in-store the same day.

Sears Takes Issue With Best Buy’s Same-Day In-Store Pickup Claim

A Precise Timeline Of How Sears Screwed Up Selling A Car Battery

A Precise Timeline Of How Sears Screwed Up Selling A Car Battery

Dennis found a $5 off code to purchase a new car battery from Sears, but assumed that ordering his item online and then picking it up at the store would not be a two-day odyssey involving a half-dozen employees and an order that somehow only materialized once it was canceled.

Michael admits that he probably should have known better than to order something from Ssears.com and…well, to expect it to show up.

Sears Offer To Mail Customer Missing Key To Floor Model Snowblower

Aaron visited Sears to pick up a new Craftsman snowblower he bought for 10% off on Sears.com, but the store only had one floor model in stock. Aaron agreed to take the unit after staff assured him that it came with a warranty, manuals, and all the things normally bundled with new snowblowers. Of course, Sears couldn’t find either the manual or the keys. A salesman promised that “Ray from Lawn & Garden” would mail the key whenever he returned, an offer Aaron refused. The salesman then offered a key from another snowblower, promising “the keys are basically universal.” That key didn’t work because, as a different associate later discovered, the unit was missing its electric start socket.
