sears...two thumbs up...

Submitted by gina on 7/19/06 at 9:56 AM. ( )


Let's all shop at Sears!

I assume you have all seen the reports about how Sears is treating
its reservist employees who are called up? By law, they are required
to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually,
people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being
called up...Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries
and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus
programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.
I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be
recognized for its contribution. Suggest we all shop at Sears, and
be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the
company gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves.
Pass it on.

So I decided to check it out before I sent it forward. I sent the
following email to the Sears Customer Service Department:
I received this email and I would like to know if it is true. If it
is, the Internet may have just become one very good source of
advertisement for your store. I know I would go out of my way to buy
products from Sears instead of another store for a like item even if
it was cheaper at the other store.

Here is their answer to my email...
Dear Customer:
Thank you for contacting Sears The information is factual. We
appreciate your positive feedback. Sears regards service to our
country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can
make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at
this time.

Bill Thorn
Sears Customer Care
Please pass this on to all your friends, Sears needs to be recognized
for this outst anding contribution and we need to show them as
Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our
military!! It's
VerifieBy Just type in "Sears" in the search menu.

From Snopes onTarget Corp.

Target Corporation will continue to ban the Salvation Army from their 1,351 stores this Christmas season. The Army will not be allowed to place their red kettles in front of Target stores.

Despite increased need caused by the hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Target continues to bar the Salvation Army.

Many observers feel that the ban by Target is a result of pressure put on the company by homosexual groups. Homosexual activists have targeted the Salvation Army for years because of the Army's refusal to recognize their lifestyle. Target is a supporter of various homosexual causes.

While Target contributes to homosexual groups, the company publicly states that they will not contribute to any religious groups. For Target, homosexual organizations are worthy of financial support, Christian and Jewish organizations are not.

So you're only good and righteous if you're giving to religious groups. What narrow minds we have today. "If it doesn't fit what I do then it's wrong!"

BTW, I plan to shop at sears now, they'll take the place of walmart for me who I've been boycotting for the last 5 years. Contributing to society by helping famlies who serve in Military is a great thing and any corp that's doing that or giving back to society has got my sales.

I will not shop at stores whom give soley to religious charities. In fact I'm all for taxing religous orginazations (Benny "the biggest fake, I'm in for the money" Hinn Ministeries) who have profits exceeding $1m a year.

Sears is still around?

Lou, If you don't donate to Christian groups that is your problem, but I certainly recognise what the salvation army did around Miami After all teh hurricanes last year.
