EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY DON’T IT!


This section will show pictures without much explanation, the pictures should tell it all.


All pictures were taken on Friday April 29, 2005 @ 9:30 am
All stores were open and ready for business
Two of the companies (see stock price http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=SHLD) just merged and are now laying off thousands of employees - see stories:

They are all located kiddy corner to one another @ a busy cross street (I did not show the Meijers store, also across from Kracked Mart)

qualityg says... - how about a new name "smearK"


NORRIDGE, Ill. (AP) -- Martha Stewart, meet Craftsman tools and Kenmore appliances.
The home doyenne has some new brand neighbors in the aisles of select Kmart stores -- and likely Sears stores too at some point. Sears Holdings Corp., which reports quarterly results for the first time this week, hopes the emerging partnership can breathe new life into two faded retail behemoths under its 10-week-old ownership.

My wife and I stopped at a smearK lat week to pick up a few items we could not find at Target or Meijers. While we stood in line we could not put our goods on the conveyor register because it had some wet gooey substance. While we handed each item to the girl from the basket she did not attempt to wipe the belt clean.

As we were about to leave another lady came in line and set her purchase on the belt. I told her that we did not because it was wet, she quickly lifted her goods and waited for it to get wiped, never did and as I walked out I swore again to avoid smearKs.
