You just gotta give these people a lot of credit. I feel obligated to run right out and buy something from them.

: Sears

I'll definitely do my best to support Sears after reading this.
This must be costing Sears some big bucks to do the right thing.

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.

I 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 the 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.

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized
for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as
Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military.

Checked Snopes.com and copied the status:Claim: Sears pays the
difference in salaries and maintains benefits for their called-up reservist
employees.

Status: True.
