Good Life. Great Price.
In any case, if you need a hammer or a car battery, you might very well head to the Sears. (The Craftsman and Diehard brand names are worth their weight in steel and lead, respectively). But, when you think of cool consumer electronics, do you think of Sears?
Probably not. In an effort to change that, Sears is going after the CE market, with greater offerings in categories such as DTVs, digital cameras, DVDs, etc. Case in point: They have a sale coming up that's been posted on BlackFriday.info. It has a long list of CE stuff (as well as more traditional Sears hardware offerings).

Now, before you rush over to Sears, do a little comparison shopping. You'll see that some of the prices are good, some are bad, and some are pretty terrible — especially compared to internet stores. In other words, if you want a Good Life and Great Price, shop around. —Ken C. Pohlmann
