This is NOT misleading. It is the actual TRUTH. I am not making that up.

Kmart owns Sears and Sears IS allowed to keep their name. If you don't believe me, then try to look it up. I would NEVER post this if it weren't true.

This happens all the time. Did you know Sears owns Lands End? Exxon and Mobil are parts of the same company but still keep the two brands.

Sears will remain essentially the same as before. KMart will remain separate because they have different images and sell to different demographics.

I think that was the merger heard 'round the world because people were just like WHA??? because up until a week before Kmart was closing stores and in bankruptcy court then all of the sudden they are merging/buying Sears.

And Toyota and Lexus; Honda and Infinity; Chevy and GM. A lot of companies do it. It's not deceptive in the least.

?????

I do believe all of you. It is just that what I think is Sears is KMart. things I bought in the past are not owned by the same anymore. If you have to try to get something repaired they tell me to buy new. I don't have clue about buying things due to the fact that the names are so unfamiliar to me.

My brother who can fix anything in a house and automobile (don't know how he got his knowledge) tells me that this is throw away society and I can't stop it. Have to go along w/it unless I would know how to take apart and use other brand names to repair. He t ells me an old car was built so that people could repair. Same way w/other things. But who wants something old? He always tries to get a used old car if he can w/low miles. I learn a lot from him about maintainence of things. Too bad he lives in the country and don't get to see him everyday.

Well, I will just have to keep asking your opinions to find out what you think person should buy in appliances. I feel I am getting insecure again!!!!
