As long as the US GANGSTER GOVERMENT keeps oppressing Business and Manufacturesr in the US with extortive confiscatory Taxation, they will continue to relocate to other more business friendly countries!

They have a choice to fix it now or Sears may disappear forever. Start with the website(s) - they are a flipping MESS!
Here's a suggestion for US stores: Get back to the original Sears roots and realize there IS a market for Made in USA and QUALITY goods at a reasonable price. None of the big dept stores have made that move yet. There are still enough Made in USA brands to market and sell with a profit. Stop Sears brand dilution and separate K-Mart and LandsEnd further. Treat your sales associates with respect and they will respect your brand.
Another suggestion: Stay away from anything political and controversial. When you have too few customers, there's no advantage in alienating any of them.
